Reid Kaplan, of Monroe has been writing since he was 17. Now a father of a little girl, he wants her to know what is really important in life.
That’s coming together at meal time, conversing as friends and family with all our differences and giving back to others.
Kaplan, a children’s author, has a platform, and he’s doing just that with his new book.
Reid Kaplan is worried about today’s world, especially when he looks at it as the father of a 4-year old daughter.
He believes we’re spending too much time on social media, which is causing less eye-to-eye conversation and he wants to make the world more tolerable of others so he’s setting an example.
“Everybody has iPhones and tablets and they’re on them so much, we’ve got to start putting them down, talking to each other again, eating together again and forming those bonds where we are comfortable talking to each other.”
