MEINDERT VAN WENSEN
Life motto of my dad: “Family First“. It resulted in a safe, uncomplicated and loving childhood.
1989. The start of a bumpy high school career.
1997. Goodbye parental home. Hello student life.
Emigrated to the remote village of Caraz, at the end of the Callejon de Huaylas, high up in the Peruvian Andes. To restore an abandoned flower farm.
2009. I fall in love with BEATRICE MOULIANITAKI;
2013. I start an Executive Master in Finance; many late evenings and long weekends later I am a Master in Finance.
2016. We have our second child ALEXIA. We decide to accept an international job-offer for my wife.
2017. We emigrate with the family to Lucerne, Switzerland. The Dutch website Vrouw.nl makes a movie series of our move.
My second major career move: Full Time Stay At Home Dad (SAHD) with a 6 months old daughter, a 4 year old son. No social security-net to rely on.
The two day course How2Talk2Kids ignited a fire in me. I found my passion for kids, their development and the impact of parenting.
I am eager to become a Self-Made-SAHD and start a blog #MyDaddyTalks.
I continued acquiring knowledge about my passion. Finished Neufeld – Intensive I: Making Sense of Kids.
2018. Completed Neufeld Intensive II: The Separation Complex.
I organize the Fatherhood Cafe once a month and talk about parenting with fellow dads.
