Class Topics

This class offers new fathers insight into preparing for those precious first few months of baby’s life. It covers how to meet baby’s five basic needs.

We also discuss how to begin to develop your own definition of what kind of a father you want to be, and how you want to interact with your child as an integral part of healthy development. How you care for your child from the very first day will build the foundation for your relationship. Are you ready to embrace fatherhood, immerse yourself in your child’s life, and strive to be a true partner in all aspects of your child’s development?
