Great conversation with Perry Towle who is the founder of ungloo, always cool to be able to meet with someone in person and have conversations on fatherhood. We were able to connect at Dad 2.0 and chat about fatherhood.
Perry is the founder of ungloo – check out his Facebook page for ungloo here http://bit.ly/2BoQ0e0 – please let him know how you found him!
Below is the ungloo mission statement:
The ungloo mission is to use animated videos and upleveling tools to bring levity and insight to the modern day hands-on dad. We are power-boosting fathers beyond the downward pull of self-medication, anxiety, and stress by providing upleveling self-development resources and inspiration. We realize parenting is way more complex than it used to be. Chances are your dad focused primarily on making money and your mom did everything else. Times have changed now that BOTH parents are bringing home the bacon, caring for the home and raising the children. These days parenting roles aren’t as clearly defined and schedules are fuller so making it all work can be can be a challenge. We realized there needs to be more awareness around this issue. Parents today are doing so much more and there are more pressures to “do it all” for their children and still have the energy left over to care for themselves. Many of us are in the dark on how to make it all work. So, in addition to the animations and articles, ungloo.com also provides tools to help parents be better individuals, fathers and mothers, spouses/partners and providers! The great news is that there are some BIG BENEFITS to being a modern day hands-on dad. Dads are spending more time with their children than their fathers did which inevitably will help make more rounded children. Because of the nature of egalitarian parenting roles, Dads now have the opportunity to cultivate more open, flexible and dynamic relationships with their partners. It might be more challenging, but if you’re willing to put in the work it will be better. The most important change needed to adapt to this modern life is we must develop healthy habits. The parents of “yesterday” resorted to self-medication methods (ie, booze, cable TV, etc). to escape. To avoid being cooked by all of the new demands, parents must develop a new paradigm which may include things like exercise, spiritual practice, self-development, smarter nutrition, smarter rest, etc. Times have changed. : ) Embrace the love!
If you have been looking for a group of like minded fathers who are willing to support you as you
would support them to chase their dreams, share their challenges, and intermix your wisdom with theirs than be sure to join the closed facebook group:
Get it all, enjoy it, make it yours, and if you continue to enjoy it, be sure to share it!
