DadGames bannerAs the nation gears up to cheer for Team USA in the 2012 London Olympics, we're gearing up to cheer for Team Dad in The Dad Games of 2012

For five weeks we're challenging you to be a Gold Medal Dad by giving you specific actions to build your connection with your children, the mom of your children and your family. 

It's important to invest in your relationship with your kids no matter what, but we're excited to make it extra fun this month with great prizes and giveaways - including autographed memorabilia from celebrity athletes and free skin care products for men! 

How can you win?!  

Every Wednesday for five weeks, the Dad Email™ will focus on a particular topic of what makes a Gold Medal Dad.  

We'll provide a checklist of specific actions you can take during the week to build your connection with your children in five areas of Gold Medal fathering:

  1. Gold Medal Dads...Spend Time with Their Kids
  2. Gold Medal Dads...Communicate with Mom
  3. Gold Medal Dads...Affirm Their Kids
  4. Gold Medal Dads...Balance Work and Family
  5. Gold Medal Dads...Always Try to Improve

Then, to win one of the awesome Dad Games prizes... 

  • Connect with us during each week on the Blog, Facebook, and Twitter. Each comment, tag or mention (for that week) will make you eligible for a prize!
