Daniel Blanchard: Veteran, Author, SuperDad, Teacher

(WTNH)– Daniel Blanchard is a man of many talents. Not only has he taught all types of children at all different levels of education but he has managed to do so while writing books and being a father to 5 of his own children. He credits his ability to juggle it all from his time in the Army and Air Force. He stated, that among the many things he learned during his time in the service, he is grateful that he can pass some of these lessons to the young minds he interacts with on a daily basis. The biggest piece of advice Blanchard had to give was to not give up on children, no matter how much they act like they don’t care or don’t want the help. It is important to remember that children need constant guidance.

Many of more of these ideas and tips can be found in his new book, “Feeling Lucky” which can be found on his website, www.granddaddyssecrets.com.
