Exploring the trials and joys of fatherhood.
We now know of the important and unique role of father’s in parenting with much research to show the difference dads make in the character development of babies and children.
“One of the most significant changes in the science of fathering is the recognition that father-infant relationships can have a positive impact on how infants develop. The idea that an infant’s attachment with their father is fundamental to how their brain and behaviour develop represents a major shift in how we view parents.”
To find out more about what dads think about fatherhood and the strengths they draw upon in their role, we have a recorded this audio CD that captures conversations from a mix of dads about their beliefs and insights into the complex world of being a dad.
Within the conversations, dads share some of the stuff they now know, the bits they’re working on, and their vision for the future of fathering.
The Tools for Fathering CD Two touches on issues such as:
* Preparing for fatherhood
* Expectations of being a dad
* Responsibility and fathering
* Influences on fatherhood
* Relationships and parenting (How fatherhood affects relationships)
* Being there - active and involved fathering
* The unique role of dads (What dads and granddads offer)
* Love and affection
* Babies’ unique relationships with their dads and their mums
* Parenting as a team
* The early days of bonding
* Connecting with new babies (dads, bonding and breastfeeding)
* Challenging times and postnatal depression
* The joys of fatherhood
We invite you to listen to the open and honest conversations with dads about fatherhood, and that you too celebrate the positive impact dads have in their relationships with babies, children, partners and families.
Tools for Fathering CD One
The dads' discussions generated so much great content that we couldn't fit all the material onto one CD – so we've produced CD One and Two! For more information and insights from dads you might also like to listen to:
