ZERO TO THREE teamed up with YouTube star La Guardia Cross to create a four-part web series that explores why dads matter and what matters to dads.
La Guardia is the creator and director of New Father Chronicles, which captures life with his adorable daughters, Amalah and Nayely. His candid and always comedic take on life as a dad has drawn millions of engaged viewers and sparks lively conversations on his social media channels. He was named to Ebony’s Power 100 list and is a leading national voice for dads. Read about why La Guardia wanted to create Daddy Matters with ZERO TO THREE.
These videos can also serve as powerful tools for those who work with dads to show them they are not alone, and to open up important discussions on a range of issues around fatherhood. That’s why we have created a discussion guide for each episode that provides questions to serve as conversation-starters and offers a range of resources related to the topics covered in each video.
“Hey, my name’s La Guardia (like the airport) Cross. I’m the creator of the viral web series ‘New Father Chronicles’ and co-creator (Leah did all the work) of the connivingly cute 2-year-old, Amalah, and our newest little sleep assassin, Nayely. I’m also an extreme non-expert on fatherhood. Luckily, that didn’t stop my friends at ZERO TO THREE from partnering with me to launch a 4 part web series titled ‘Daddy Matters’.
This series is the beginning of a conversation we’d like to have with newbie, experienced, and soon to be dads. I sat down with friends and cool strangers to discuss things that matter to dads, while showcasing why we matter in the lives of our kids.
We’ll talk about the silly mistakes we’ve made, what we’ve learned (positive or negative) from our own fathers, the parenting struggles we face, and how to support each other. We’d love for you to join the conversation, invite a friend or family member, ask questions, and drop some nuggets you’ve learned on your own journey.”
