Bartlett, IL (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
Dads-to-be and new fathers take note—men are choosing to take on a lot more responsibility at home.
According to a new survey by the Pew Research Center (http://goo.gl/ZCF1y4), Americans expect dad to be more of a moral teacher and emotional comforter than a breadwinner or disciplinarian. Nearly 60% of Americans believe that it is "extremely important” for a father to provide values and morals to his children. Roughly half say it is extremely important for a dad to provide emotional support (52%) and discipline (47%). And just 41% say providing income for his children is one of a father’s most important responsibilities.
However, as these dads take on new roles, there is far less educational material aimed specifically for them. Most, if not all men, are anxious for, or unsure about, the arrival of a newborn and the subsequent months of parenthood just as much as the women. As Kelly Wallace, of CNN Parents, points out, "Fatherhood has clearly changed from when I grew up and dads were about as likely to wake during the night as they were to actually give birth."

With increasing involvement, but lack of content available to dads, how can these new, American fathers become more confident and proactive at home?
In "DADspirations: The 1st 100 Days of Fatherhood. Tips for Parenting Every New Dad and Dad-to-Be Should Know," author and humorist, Pete Densmore highlights why the first 100 days of fatherhood are critical for a new father and how developing a strategy will make the first months as positively impactful as possible, while also setting up the new dad for long-term success with his newborn.
And when it comes to a fathers’ role in children’s lives, another Pew study found that most Americans say that having a father in the home is essential to a child’s happiness. About seven-in-ten (69%) adults say that children need a father in the home to grow up happily.
