Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
Offering parenting tips and personal experiences, ‘American Idol’ finalist James Durbin is featured in a new episode of the groundbreaking web series, “My Life As a Dad”. Aiming to serve as a tool to becoming better parents, the show presents revealing interviews with celebrity and professional athlete fathers, and emerges as the go-to source for seasoned, expectant and new dads.
Robert "Daddy" Nickell, the host and executive producer of the show, along with filmmaker Tommy Reid, producer and director, attested that “My Life As a Dad” was created to fill the void in support and guidance material for fathers. They allege that the majority of available sources of parenting tips and knowledge are focused on the mother’s needs and points of view. With the new series, and through the perspective of famous dads, they present a fresh man-to-man approach that serves as both entertainment and education for fathers simply looking to become better parents.
Complementing the team of known personalities featured on the show, James Durbin, ‘American Idol’ finalist, was invited to present his experiences and advice. The 3-part episode in which he is featured is now available at http://youtu.be/_RjsnfQLeAw, when James shares a memory of his father, the story of the night his wife went into labor, and even plays his hit song, “Parachute”, exclusively for the “My Life As a Dad” audience.
With an estimated 70 million-plus fathers in the U.S., and nearly two million of these being single fathers, the need and relevancy of the show are justified. “We can always learn from someone else’s experiences… That’s the case even for me, after seven kids. I can’t tell you that I always know what to do when someone gets sick or gets into trouble, but my chats with these guys on the show have been greatly inspiring,” admitted Nickell. “I hope we can motivate our male audience to want to become better dads – that’s the whole point.”
Tommy Reid reported that females have actually become a significant portion of the audience of the show, and he believes that the subjects discussed on air are just as relevant to them as are the familiar faces on their screen. “Moms will always appreciate what dads have to say on this show, because ultimately they speak of something that is simply vital to them – family and children,” said Reid.
