About Me


Hi! Welcome to Kick Ass Dad. I am thrilled you are here. My name is Michael Mataluni and I live in Orlando, Florida with my lovely wife and three children. While living in Oregon my wife and I were foster parents to 7 children over a two year period.  We are child advocates and passionate about bringing possibility to kids in need. I am launching a free podcast in order to engage parents and create a community of like minded people.

Let’s face it, parenting is hard. None of us can do it alone. It takes a village to raise a child right?  What if we can create an on-line village that brings great insight from all over the world on what it is to be a great parent. The key to being a kick ass parent is your willingness to be honest with yourself and accept your imperfections. We must be willing to fail, get back up and dust ourselves off.

It is only by investing in ourselves, that we can invest more in our children.  It’s like when you’re on an airplane and the flight attendant says that you must put the oxygen mask on yourself before your child.  Life is about finding your center, your purpose.  When you can do that, you will have the energy to do more than you have ever imagined.

In the podcast we are going to debunk the myths of parenting.  I will give you powerful techniques and tools that you can use to take your power back.

If we can summon the courage to speak up and get honest, we can help each other succeed at the most important job we will ever do.
