BEYOND THE RHETORIC
Fueled by caffeine and Wi-Fi, Michael Kwan is the thinker who thinks he might be thinking too much over at Beyond the Rhetoric. There, he discusses life as a progressive work-at-home dad, challenging traditional gender roles for both himself and his daughter. Topics range from restaurant reviews to parenting dilemmas to philosophical musings. And it’s not a dad bod; he prefers the term “father figure.”
British Columbia Mom
