As a dad, I’ve learned firsthand the profound impact our relationships have on our children. It’s not just about us; it’s about creating a nurturing space where our children can thrive, no matter what life throws our way.

I’m Harry Lock, founder of Dad’s Co-Pilot, and I’m on a mission to redefine co-parenting and make things better for families everywhere.

My journey into fatherhood wasn’t smooth sailing. At 23, I was hit with the reality of impending fatherhood while dealing with a rocky relationship. The road ahead seemed uncertain, but one thing was clear – I was determined to be there for my child.

Navigating the family court system was tough. It tested my strength and determination. But through it all, I kept my focus on what mattered most – my daughter’s well-being. Despite the challenges, I gained a deeper understanding of the importance of effective co-parenting and its impact on our kids. Today, I stand as a dad who’s been through it – someone who’s emerged from the struggles with a renewed sense of purpose.

My legacy is simple: to create a world where every child grows up in a loving, supportive environment, no matter their parents’ circumstances. I know co-parenting isn’t easy. There are disagreements, hurtful words and tough decisions. But I’ve learned the power of changing perspective, setting aside differences and focusing on our children’s development.

As a coach and thrive practitioner, I’m here to support dads (and mums) in navigating co-parenting with confidence and grace. Together, let’s rewrite the narrative, challenge stereotypes, and create brighter futures for our children.

Join me on this journey as we work towards a world where co-parenting isn’t just about us – it’s about building a better future for our children, one relationship at a time. Together, we can make a difference.
