“The blog format is new for me, even more so, that the audience will be children who, for various reasons, are growing up without fathers. To become a “virtual dad” for them, especially to be a person who is ready to give useful advice at the right time, is a great responsibility. Therefore, I get used to the new role not without excitement. My goal is to help every boy, every young man, who will be regular viewers of the blog, become cooler. To give them skills, to teach little things that will become their soft skills, also skills that will make them disciplined and systemic people.” , said Maxim Sikora .
