First time dad tips and advice for the nervous, new father

Let's face it, even if you're planning to start a family for the first time, it can be quite a HUGE surprise once your wife finds out she's having a baby! Although you've planned and hoped for this life changing event, nothing really prepares you once the reality sets in.

  • Will having a baby change my life?
  • Do I make enough money to support my new family member?
  • What will my friends think?
  • Where do I start and how do I deal with my new feelings and questions?
  • What should I do or say to be supportive of my wife?

Yes, all of these things usually pop into your mind all at once. If it's possible to be happy, excited yet scared and insecure, then this is THE "perfect storm" of emotions, a lot of people may never experience.

But hey, we're just guys right? Things have changed a lot over the years and we are now in a world where we have to take a larger role in bringing up our children and supporting our spouse. As the saying goes, "when one door closes, another one opens". Even though you may be dealing with doubts, worries, excitement and fear, there really IS a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow (or more likely, a beautiful new son or daughter).

This course was prepared to help you through the initial shock and excitement of becoming a new dad. Dig in and learn more. You're not the only guy on the planet to endure this, even though it may feel that way!
