According to Greg Bishop, founder of Boot Camp for New Dads and author of two books on fathering. “The key to improving the quality of life for many young children lies in helping fathers be more capable and confident. It is through the significant efforts of our dedicated coaches that we have the pleasure of helping dads from all walks of life across the nation in our Boot Camp programs.”
He continued, “Research has indicated that children whose fathers are a consistent, positive force in their lives do better socially, intellectually and in a broad range of other factors. Many new dads are willing to go the distance for their babies, but are unsure of where to start, what to do and how to care for their babies. Boot Camp for New Dads programs, led by certified coaches and veteran dads, gets new fathers off to a great start.”
New Dads Learn What to Expect at Boot Camp Workshops
Dads-to-be are be better equipped to face the challenges and opportunities of fatherhood after attending a Boot Camp “hands on” educational workshop. Men attend the class when they are expecting their first baby, and are joined in the workshop by “veterans” who had previously attended and have returned with their two to four-month-old baby in tow. They are able to give the dads-to-be a realistic idea of what to do and what to expect when their first baby comes. For many men attending, it’s their first time holding a baby.
Boot Camp for New Dads
Now celebrating their 18th year, Boot Camp for New Dads is nationally acclaimed as the “Best Practice” for preparing men to be fathers and has been named a U.S. Navy Model Program. Boot Camp for New Dads has prepared more than 200,000 men for fatherhood over the years.
With more than 4.1 million births (National Center for Health Statistics), and approximately 1.5 million men becoming new dads every year, it’s more important than ever for fathers to realize that being a “good provider” is only part of the very central role they have in their children’s lives.
