There is a quote that says “Anyone can become a father but it takes someone special to become a dad”. Becoming a dad is one of the biggest life changes we will ever have and its usually met with a mix of excitement and fear! After all it’s not a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Each child is so different and there is no manual to help us along the way!
There are however, some really great parenting courses that can help you, and of course – many men that are already on the journey of being a dad and a grandad, that you can glean wisdom, advice and tips from.
Learning from those who have gone before you is one of the best ways to discover what might work well for you, and also what potential mistakes you might want to avoid.
Ultimately being a dad is one of the most amazing privileges and an incredible gift. Sure, it’s not without its challenges, but it’s one of the most rewarding things we can ever do, and one of the greatest responsibilities we will ever have. So why not do it well ?
