About Jamie Kaler

Hi, I’m Jamie Kaler, founder of The Parent’s Lounge. Welcome and thanks for stopping by!

So, what is The Parent’s Lounge? Think of it as a Parental Mental Health Destination. It’s a digital destination for parents everywhere to feel part of a community that not only helps and uplifts, but entertains.

I remember when my kids were first born, I thought, “Sure, I have kids, but my life is going to remain the same. The kids will just have to adapt to my existence.”

Okay, that was idiotic. Everything is different now. Nothing is about us anymore. It’s all about them. And honestly, it feels really good. My kids have opened up emotions in me that I didn’t know existed. Yes, I cry uncontrollably at Lowe’s commercials. And sure, I definitely say “I love you” way too much, but it feels really good, doesn’t it?

My carefree life has been replaced by a series of panic attacks. From “uh oh, that didn’t sound good” to “well, I guess it’s back to the emergency room” – every day is stressful. But at least now I have a purpose, and it’s very simple:  to raise these kids the best way I can and be the type of father who holds his head high with pride.

Now I have a purpose, and it’s very simple:  to raise these kids the best way I can and be the type of father who holds his head high with pride.

I don’t know about you, but the second I think I have this thing figured out, it all changes. And that’s why I started The Parent’s Lounge – so that maybe together we can help each other by sharing our experiences here in this group.

I love you all. (wow I said it again)
