Get practical advice on navigating the waters of being a new father both before and after baby arrives. It has long been stated that while a woman becomes a mother once she learns that she is pregnant, a man only becomes a father once he sees his child. While this may be accepted as a common truth, it fails to address a more important issue: how to be a father. What are you supposed to do? How much will things change? What can be expected and even unexpected? There is no shortage or classes and resources on how to prepare to have a baby (how to change a diaper, make a bottle, etc.) but what is often overlooked is the other ways in which becoming a father changes one’s life. What sort of financial obligations emerge? What items need to be purchased (and, more importantly, not purchased)? How can one balance being a parent and a husband/partner? Students will learn about the ways in which they can expect their lives to change after becoming a parent. For new fathers, same sex partners, and adoptive parents.
