What is parenting like for you Dads? And what advice or tips would you give to new dads?
Is it what you expected or completely different? What do you love about it and what do you find most challenging?
We would love to hear some parenting advice from dads: Thoughts and stories about things you wish you’d been told about becoming a dad. Everything from ‘trying for a baby’, pregnancy, the birth, the baby stage, the toddler years, starting school…changes in your relationship, personal fitness, sense of self, work-life balance, sex…
Some dads we’ve interviewed while researching for our book and blog talked about how surprised they were by the shift in their relationship. Others talked about it putting things into perspective for them. And some got frustrated by their wife always folding laundry and never looking them in the eye. My husband often talks about feeling torn. He is at work at 5pm knowing I’m going crazy in the kitchen but feeling like he’s letting work down if he leaves early.
What is your experience?
