Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad knows a thing or two about raising kids in the digital age. Growing up in the 80's and 90's, Casey understands the Millennial mindset perhaps better than most. He's one busy guy, as evidenced by his ubiquitous social media presence and the ability to seemingly appear everywhere. Not only is he a father to two young boys, but as a blogger extraordinaire, Influencer and general man-about-town, Casey has figured out the secret sauce to raising kids in an age of Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram.
When a child sees that their father is out there, they, inevitably want to be out there too, right? That's okay - Case P. is one step ahead of the curve, and his ingenious plan for organically easing his kids into the online and digital world in which they'll inevitably reside is both prescient and brilliant.
In this episode of the podcast, we talk about Casey's childhood, growing up as the oldest of three boys, sons of Jamaican immigrant parents; the important lessons that his parents taught him during the various stages of his youth, and his perspective on many things, not the least of which kids and technology, online bullying and what he has coming down the pipes next.
