Fatherhood

New Dad Hacks

“We’ve been there, too. Being a new dad is awesome & crazy & overwhelming & humbling & frustrating all at the same time. There hasn’t been one dad in the history of dadkind that hasn’t been ‘figuring it out along the way.” To help you jump up that learning curve a little faster, here are some hacks – for new dads by new dads that have been there.”

Check out 50 Hacks for New Dads by Tony Chen at Savvy Daddy and pass it along to a guy who needs it!

My favorite? #24:

“”Women want you, men want to be like you.” That may have been your mantra as a single man. But now, just stick with “your wife wants you, and your kids want to be like you.” Oddly enough, if you do that, the former saying becomes true, too.”

Derek Markham

Things I dig include: simple living, natural fatherhood, attachment parenting, natural building, unassisted childbirth (homebirth), bicycles, permaculture, organic and biodynamic gardening, vegan peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips, bouldering, and the blues. Find me elsewhere at @NaturalPapa, @DerekMarkham, Google+, or RebelMouse.
