Hey!  I’m Phil.  Blogger, freelance writer and proofreader, life coach, and most importantly….father.

Parenting is always a challenge, especially when you do it alone.  Let’s just say I’ve been there and got the t-shirt.

It was just me and my boy from the year 2000 when he was just 8 years old, and we couldn’t possibly be closer. We attribute this to effective communication, mutual respect, and of course love.

In 2015 I gained a wonderful daughter as my son Ryan found his match in Aimee, and she quickly moved in.  This fantastic addition added far more to our little fold than I could’ve imagined, and we all grew, as people, for the better.

I’d love to share our ‘formula’ with you, and help you achieve the same close bond that we enjoy.

What I did, what we did together, is our ‘Tao’, our philosophy and our blueprint. I hope it helps, or at least provides some motivation and a ray of hope when the going gets tough.
