This Incredibles 2 Special Feature is presented in collaboration between The Rock Father™ and Disney•Pixar. Incredibles 2 is now available Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD,™ Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand  - a Holiday Wish Guide Pick as a perfect gift!

A year before Disney•Pixar's Incredibles 2 hit theaters, I noticed a familiar family dynamic at play. I'd been invited to attend the D23 Expo in Anaheim, and it was inside the famed "Hall D23" that members of the audience got their first-look at some footage from the long-awaited sequel.  By the time the film hit theaters this summer, it had been 14 years since the original - with enough time having passed that the world had become a very different place. One big change: I'd become an at-home dad, and so did Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible). To put it lightly, there were adjustments to be made, and the experience has been a rollercoaster. For our family, I became the at-home parent for financial reasons - my wife, my own "Mrs. Incredible," makes more money than I do and has the stability of a great job (21 years and counting!) with essential benefits like health insurance that are often unaffordable for hired gun contract guys like myself. For the Incredibles, the reasons were a bit more complicated, yet entirely similar. Helen Parr (Elastigirl) was offered a gig outside of the home that would support her family, yet even she was conflicted in a way very similar to my wife, stating "in order to help my family, I have to leave it." Bob thought that staying home with the kids would be "easy." If you've ever been responsible for a small human being, I think we can agree that it's never easy. Still, in the years that I've had the good fortune to do what I do, part of which includes running this very website, some (a very select few) have deemed me a "parenting expert," and that is a falsehood. Being "The Rock Father™," I do have some tips, but they're more like reminders... for myself. How to be an Incredible dad...
