LEAVE NO MAN BEHIND

LEAVE NO MAN BEHIND

Hello and welcome to a strange new world. You have traveled far through the desert, only to be met time and again by one empty oasis after another. You are lost and alone, wandering, wondering if someone, anyone, knows how you feel. And just when you think you can't go on, and no one could possibly understand your struggle, a hand reaches out to you, lifts you to your feet, and carries you to the promised land. He feeds you knowledge, shelters you from the self-righteous (and the ridiculous), and provides you with the tools you need to survive in this brave new world. You are a stranger in a strange land, but you are not alone. Let him be your guide. Follow closely as you travel together on this adventure of a lifetime. For now, you are a foreigner to "Fatherhood" but soon YOU will be the master of this realm.

"No Man is Expendable!"

This is Fodder 4 Fathers...

FIRST "NOT-SO-STUPID" STUDY OF THE WEEK: GAP IN SUPPORT FOR NEW DADS

 

http://www.fira.ca/article.php?id=136


 FIRA (Father Involvement Research Alliance) is a great resource for new and expectant dads. With interesting articles and up to date stats specifically relating to fatherhood, the FIRA website is a one stop shop for all questions first-time father-related. This article merely points out that there is a resource gap for first-time dads in the postpartum period after the birth of a child. Apparently, after pre-natal classes and play groups, there's no where for a dad to turn for information on what to do regarding the raising of his child. I'd call it a stupid study except for the fact that they're actually looking at ways to fix the problem, and that's something I can get behind. As fathers, we all should.
