THE ROCK FATHER has participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Reebok. He received a gift card as well as a promotional item as a thank you.

It's official: This week is "Back-to-School" here at Rock Father HQ... for Addie. While she'll be starting First Grade, little sister won't start Preschool for another week - our district starting at the later end of things from what we've seen. In wrapping-up our Back-to-School shopping, the final piece of the puzzle is an important one - fresh gym shoes for both girls. With the Reebok Kids Twistform shoes on-sale* at Finish Line, The Rock Daughters and I made a special trip to check 'em out and get properly-sized to start the school year off right!

Millions of families entered the world of Disney's DESCENDANTS this summer, marking one of the biggest debuts in history for a Disney Channel original movie. Having covered the film extensively here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, it's pretty exciting to see The Rock Daughters™ becoming fully-immersed in the world of Auradon Prep - and with a new fashion assortment released as part of the Disney D-Signed Collection at Kohl's, it all leads us perfectly into Back-to-School

Five Back-to-School Essentials... for Dad!

Written by

Every time I sit down to pen one of these Back-to-School posts, I still find myself tripping over the fact that we're going to have a first grader and a pre-preschooler this year. We start late compared to some (end of the month), so there's still a little bit of ramp-up time, but I'm getting things in order. My toolkit of essentials is robust, but I'm throwing down five of my top picks right here on the site - from fuel for the day to grooming, rock to play. Check this out...

PEANUTS Brand AmbassadorWith Back-to-School Season in full-effect, there's a lot of choices out there in terms of Pop Culture Styling, and this year Hanna Andersson has a full line of Backpacks and Lunch Bags featuring some of our favorite characters. The Hannah & Friends Collection features FROZEN, STAR WARS and showcased here, PEANUTS. For the latter, as a Brand Ambassador for Snoopy and the Peanuts gang, the folks at Hanna Andersson sent one of their new backpacks for my oldest daughter (though my youngest is now eyeing the STAR WARS "Silhouettes" backpack for herself) in the Charlie Brown & Friends Design (also available: Snoopy & Woodstock). While Charles M. Schulz' iconic creations are already a big deal here at Rock Father HQ, you can be sure that they'll be a big deal when 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios release THE PEANUTS MOVIE into theaters on November 6th. Get ahead of the game now!

Tee FuryIf you're heading Back-to-School and wish to rep some pop culture flavor, the crew over at TeeFury may have just the uniform that you require. Available through August 30, 2015, the TeeFury Back-to-School Collection boasts t-shirts inspired by THE SIMPSONS, HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, H.P. LOVECRAFT, PACIFIC RIM, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, DRAGONBALL Z, and even WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER (but that's not all). Here's a few Rock Father picks from the 18 available designs...

I love a lot of different shoes, by VANS are hands-down my favorite brand, period. Add into the mix their collaborative efforts with bands (SLAYER, METALLICA, KISS, IRON MAIDEN, etc.) and brands (STAR WARS, DISNEY) and it's stuff-I-love overload. Coming off the heat of their VANS x STAR WARS Collection (a line that I have a couple different pairs of), VANS x Disney brings forth some new shoes for the whole family, and they're loaded with characters that generations have known and loved - Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Minnie, Pluto and more. There's accessories, too (I almost just bought some Donald socks), and to celebrate the release, Mickey himself just made an appearance at the Vans US Open of Surfing. Check out some photos by Mitch Tomlinson below...

Ah, the summer months... a time for adventure, excitement, and of course, The Indisposables - those essential items that just help to make things better. For 2015, I'm highlighting just five new indisposable essentials that can be considered to be certified "Rock Father-approved" picks. If you're a regular reader, there's actually a good chance that these have already crossed your browser in a more subtle form as they've already become a part of our daily routine, and hopefully they'll soon be a part of yours as well!

The Indisposables are back, folks. And this time? That's right, we're taking you on a trip to an exotic place called Comfortopia - a land where you could win big - scoring all 10 of the Indisposable Comforts from an HDTV and XBOX to the simple things, like proper undies and a great pair of pants. In fact, there's over $5,000 in "Indisposable" prizes, and some of that glory could be yours.

A few weeks into Spring and there's much to be considered. I've been thinking about baseball a lot (and writing about it on occasion), especially since we've been playing in the yard quite a bit (lots of "balls over the fence" to be retrieved). We've also begun some gardening activities - plotting the plan for the months ahead, while getting the post-winter clean-up all taken care of. There's also some "rocking" to take place, and with that comes a list of five important items when it comes to spring at Rock Father HQ. You could call them "The Indisposable" items of spring...

Pull-Ups® Big Kid Academy - The Adventure Continues...

Written by
Tracking Pixel

Big Kid AcademyWhen I last wrote about our adventures in Potty Training, I may have mistakenly felt that we were nearing the end of the line. Four months later, and I got the call to work on another sponsored campaign with Pull-Ups®, sharing a few more words about how it's all going. Bottom line, Little Finley is doing good, but it still feels like we're really, really close to being done. Following along as a full-fledged member of the Pull-Ups® Big Kid Academy, we've got tools to help with progress and rewards, while Finn can take things at her own pace. She's soooo close, and she really makes us proud when she "holds it" and stays dry through the night or through a long car ride. While there's dozens of different Potty Training methods out there, using Pull-Ups® training pants from the start can help kids build confidence and independence - they're not a diaper, but more like Big Kid undies (almost). If you're ready to give Pull-Ups® a try, I've even got a Big Kid Deal for you to spread a little savings - Rock Father style!

As I know all too well, cough and cold season is upon us, and having two little girls (one of which frequents a germ-infested battleground called "kindergarten"), I've seen my fair share of runny noses and germy hands. Since you're reading THE ROCK FATHER, there's a pretty good chance that you're a parent, too, and as such I'm sharing Five Cough & Cold Tips for Parents, courtesy of my friends at Boogie Wipes and Kandoo. Even better? We've all teamed-up to give YOU a chance at winning a "Cough & Cold Comfort Basket" that includes a "Freddy the Frog" Humidifier from Crane, a Boogie Wipes & Kandoo Care Package and a $50 Amazon Gift Card. So... are you ready to rock?

If you're like me, chances are you've had some of these on-hand and put to good use with your little ones. That's why I'm excited to be teaming up with Boogie Wipes and Kandoo to spread the word about two of their great products - and to offer you a chance to win a $100 Walmart gift card! Whether you're looking to fill stockings or just want to stock up for cold and flu season, these two products will have your kids begging to blow their noses and wash their hands - and they're on Rollback at Walmart now!
