This site is to help dads be the best dad they can be, and reap the rewards that come with it – like extra hugs and your kids bragging about you. This is a great time to be a dad, for those of who are already involved with your kids good for you! Please leave comments about your favorite moments, trips, etc… Your stories can help inspire other dads! For those of you that are not yet involved, maybe you are not sure how to get involved. We can help, no mater how old your kids are! Feel free to ask questions or for suggestions.
I also want to share the journey I am on with my AMAZING daughter! Before I had kids I wasn’t sure what to do, or what kind of dad I was going to be. It turned out to be the most fulfilling thing I have ever done, and continue to do!
I have learned a tremendous amount so far and I am always learning more. One of the things I found out is that dads have an enormous impact on their kids development, and how successful or unsuccessful their kids life ends up being. I know you are probably saying WHOA…. Before you freak out it turns out it is really easy to make a positive impact.
Simple little things like listening to your kids, and giving them 10 minutes a day of undivided attention makes a world of difference. What about mom you say? Both parents have a huge impact, but study after study and personal experience says dads have a tremendous impact. Moms and dads approach things differently and kids need both parents. The dynamics of parenting and families are changing. The current generation of fathers with young kids is the first generation ever to really be getting involved. I think that is cool as we get to blaze our own trail and do things our way, every man – dad or not is good at that!
If you have a favorite link, book or resource let me know and I will add a link to it, and give you credit. This is a place to find answers, talk about being dads, and what happens along the way.
Enjoy The Journey of Being A Dad!
