It’s three a.m. and the baby is still crying. Exhaustion, sleep deprivation and lack of intimacy with your partner have become a normal part of life over the past few months. With approximately 4 million babies born in the United States annually and Father’s Day just around the corner, is it any wonder that many new dads are asking themselves, “Is this what fatherhood is all about? Surely there must be more to it than just this.” Author Kathryn Michaels believes there is and argues that it is possible to embrace your new life as a dad.
Is embracing fatherhood really that important?
President Obama grew up without his dad, and has said that being a father is the most important job he has. According to the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC), an Office of Family Assistance (OFA) funded national resource, “fatherlessness is a growing crisis in America, one that undergirds many of the challenges that families are facing. When dads aren't around, young people are more likely to drop out of school, use drugs, be involved in the criminal justice system, and become young parents themselves.” This is not a small issue since out of the estimated 70 million fathers in the United States in 2011, about 16% or 25 million men had children younger than 18.
So, where does one start?
It begins when you bring the new baby home, adjusting to life as a proud dad. No one plans to fail but many fail to plan. Here are some ideas for this Father’s Day to all the new and not-so-new dads out there:
So, how are you going to make your Father’s Day different this year?
