There’s no magical formula to help you understand why your baby won’t stop crying, or why your 3-year-old suddenly hates chicken nuggets after demanding chicken nuggets for dinner. There are, however, countless dads who came before you, navigating the gold-studded minefield of fatherhood. Some of those highly-seasoned dads dedicate their professional lives to The Dad’s brother father community, Fatherly. In an effort to empower new dads and veteran dads alike, they pooled their knowledge into a comprehensive guide to fatherhood.
Oddly enough, many of us find ourselves really needing our dads for the first time in years when we ourselves become dads. We crave their guidance, strength, and reassurance. We have the sudden and overwhelming urge to grab them by the shoulders and shake them (just a little), yelling “how did you do this” until they spill their secrets. Though there are no cheat codes in parenting, the Fatherly team partnered with Harper Horizon to give us the next best thing.
Fatherhood: A Comprehensive Guide to Birth, Budgeting, Finding Flow, and Becoming a Happy Parent is jam-packed with all things Dad. It details dad-tested, data-backed answers to your burning questions, and questions you didn’t even know you had. With chapters covering everything from the delivery room to screen time, Fatherhood has the unique ability to prepare dads for several stages of parenting. Ultimately, this groundbreaking book is a roadmap to fatherhood.
“We created Fatherly to help guys who were becoming dads raise great kids while leading fulfilling adult lives.” Michael Rothman, Co-Founder, and CEO of Fatherly said in a press release. “Our goal with Fatherhood is to squeeze the best juice out of the 20,000+ articles we’ve written into a single resource that will prep dads for what’s ahead while letting them know that they’re not alone in their often weird thoughts, feelings and observations in those early years as a new parent.”
As every dad knows, maps are highly individual and open to interpretation. Maybe you know a shortcut or an unexpected detour means having to pull over at a rest stop and re-route the rest of your trip. Similarly, Fatherhood gives dads the important information – what you do with it, well, that’s up to you.
