Our guest Keith Zafren founded The Great Dads Project to inspire and empower fathers to become great dads.

The Great Dads Project helps transform fathers into great dads by teaching them three core fathering practices: affirmation, acceptance, and affection.

Keith has also written a book How to Be A Great Dad, an inspiring guide into the adventure of fatherhood.
