There are two types of dads in the world: Those who understand their kid’s math homework and those who don’t. Most of us fall into that latter category when it comes to arithmetic more advanced than point spreads and how many fantasy points we need Drew Brees to have on a given week to win. So when our kids ask us to check their homework we get a tinge of dread. If only there was an app that would allow us to check our young Einstein’s algebra homework without breaking into a mental sweat. Wait…someone made one? Check out Photomath. Photomath is the World’s first smart camera calculator that reads and solves mathematical problems in real time, making math easy and simple. This is a great tool for kids to grasp their math homework and parents to help them untangle the web of simple and complex equations. Not only does Photomath instantly solve equations it also lays out the solution step by step so your kids (and you) can learn a thing or two about binomial theorems without having your eyes glaze over.

So, one of the founders of Relevant Dad has had a slight addition to eBay for a long time. Slight = 3+ hours per day, and that co-founder is me, Kevin. With a pair of 5-month-old boys, and the forthcoming fall and winter, I have begun to look onward from eBay for more focused baby-outfitting. Saturday I found it. It’s called thredUP. Below is an outline of purchases and prices. My wife (who loathes my eBay addition) actually praised the purchases. #winning

Stereotypically, moms are the ones who are a mess when their kids step onto the bus on the first day of school. But not in Oliver’s house. Dad is the nervous, nauseous mess who would rather stay home. You see, dad is not ready for the first day of school and he is dragging his feet a little too much to the grief of Oliver who is excited to start on a new adventure. Author and illustrator Mike Wohnoutka brings us a charming back to school tale that reflects the mixed emotions that families have on this very big day. Now, someone get dad some Kleenex, he’s a blubbering mess.
Getting your kids to brush their teeth can be a pretty daunting task. Half the time they just chew on their toothbrush as they stare into the bathroom mirror and drool sparkly pink bubblegum glop into the sink. Not anymore. Kolibree toothbrushes are connected via Bluetooth to your smartphone. Simply launch the “Go Pirate” game which they can control by brushing while the toothbrushes sensors log data to show you whether your kid is overbrushing or missing spots. In a world where everything seems to be “smart” this and “connected” that, your kid probably doesn’t care about ideal oral hygiene, but at least brushing their teeth is a blast.

Every dad needs a decent tumbler. Sure, you could grab Starbucks every morning on your way to the office or you can invest in some decent beans and bring your own brew to work instead and all it will cost you is four to five Skinny Vanilla Lattes. Corkcicle‘s new tumbler will keep hot drinks hot for three hours and cold drinks cold for nine. For real. The clean/minimal design is complimented by triple-walled insulation, a see-through spillproof/shatter-proof lid, and no-slip bottom. Drink your coffee in style while you’re on the go this fall.
