If the old proverb about a village raising a child is true, the modern version involves dad-specific books, blogs, support and activity groups, and Instagram pages. Dads have more resources than ever before aimed squarely at helping them succeed as parents. Case in point: “The Expectant Father” is a New York Times best-selling book on preparing for fatherhood.
But that merely scratches the surface. There are numerous blogs and Instagram pages written by fathers for fathers, such as this popular one by Doyin Richards in which he shares his learning experiences and inspirations as he raises two daughters. And while support and activity groups are still geared toward moms, there are more options for dads (even gay dads) than ever before. Just check your area if you’re curious.
What does all this mean? Dads don’t have to be afraid of whether or not they’re doing things right because someone or something is there to help them along the way, which is good for everyone.
