Celebrate Dad's: Matt Sweetwood Became a Single Dad of Five Kids; Hired Ex-Israeli Military as His Nannies.
Our (slightly off) Father’s Day episode!
In 1996, Matt Sweetwood, the author of "Man Up" became a single dad of five children who were between the ages of 18 months and 8 years old. Matt’s ex-wife (and mother of his five children) left the house (in handcuffs, as Matt recalls). Apparently during one of her psychotic breaks, she tried to take Matt's race car for a spin. That, Matt says, was the final straw. She hasn’t seen the children in 13 years.
Matt’s new book -- “Man Up” -- talks about becoming a single dad, not trying to replace their mom, different methods he used (including hiring two members of the Israeli military as his live-in nannies!!!) and others. Great, inspiring, Father-of-the-Year type story.
