NYC Dads Group is going GLOBAL this afternoon! We partnered with NHK, the Japanese equivalent of the BBC, to display how our community of dads engages with our kids & each other. Broadcast live from NY every Thursday afternoon for NHK’s morning news program, “Good Morning Japan,” is the most watched morning news show in Japan. Japan is 13 hrs ahead of EST, so our segment airs live in Japan Friday morning.
We have participated in our most comprehensive parenting segment thus far and it won’t even be aired in the U.S. (unless you subscribe to NHK Japan premium channel via Time Warner cable). As Matt S. stated matter of factly, “sometimes we look for the gold ring of paternal involvement in Scandinavia & don’t realize that the U.S. is much farther ahead than other countries like Brazil and Japan.” NHK’s goal is to display involved fatherhood in the U.S. for parents in Japan. They have captured a dads night out, joined us at a daily outing at the Prospect Park Zoo, filming one of the dads in his home with his working wife, and joining a few of us this afternoon for a 3-minute live shot (the culminating piece to the other pre-taped segment). NYC Dads Group are very excited about the opportunity for us to share our community of dads with another country like Japan.
Wish us luck…
