Boot Camp for New Dads
Boot Camp for New Dads offers soon-to-be fathers useful skills that will help them be better equipped to meet the challenges and responsibilities of parenthood. Hosted by veteran dads, the free workshop offers a casual atmosphere where new dads can ask questions they may not feel comfortable asking in other settings.
There are no boring lectures here. The 3-hour workshop is interactive. Men spend time in small groups with veteran dads who volunteer to help.
Participants will be given the book Crash Course for Dads-to-Be, which contains practical parenting advice from veteran dads.
The workshop covers the following topics:
- How to be involved in your baby's care
- Parenting as a team
- How to soothe a crying baby
- Baby blues vs. post-partum depression
- Newborn safety
Men typically attend the free workshop one to two months before their first baby arrives.
Class size is limited and registration is required. Breakfast will be provided.
