Justin Batt is a TEDx speaker, writer, OCR athlete, and best selling author of the book, "Daddy Saturday."
What’s the one thing we could do to improve the future? Raise better young people. Facilitate better parenting. Our country faces an epidemic of “fatherlessness.” Whether due to a father figure not physically being in the picture or mentally being distant - it is a massive obstacle that Justin Batt has been working to overcome with Daddy Saturdays. It’s not just for dad’s and not just on Saturdays, his book and his programs create a paradigm shift about how we look at our free time, how we engage with our children and what being an intentional parent really looks like. As he says, let’s all raise good kids that become great adults! Joe De Sena introduces this episode, and at the end of the interview, he talks about what he learned from Justin with co-host Sefra the Seedhuntress. Our co-host Johnny Waite sat down with Justin at the Spartan World Media Fest event by ATP Science.
