Best Dad Ever

Being a great father is really important. It's probably the most important thing you will do in your life. Raising your kids is 100% as much your job as their mother's. Being a dad is something to be admired. It's a role filled with incredible meaning and purpose. Something that connects back to time immemorial, to every father that ever lived and ever will live.

But being a great dad is really hard. We need help to get there. We all need some guidance.

Unfortunately, most published advice falls abysmally short. We're supposed to read one book as a sleep-deprived new parent who can barely manage to remember how to wrap a swaddle and be good to go for the rest of our kid's life? We're supposed to sift through academic papers and podcasts and the latest research ourselves? And then just have it all oncall in our memory banks when the time comes? How's is that sustainable?

It's not.

That's why we created the Daily Dad - a daily email on fatherhood, love and raising great kids.

A Dad is A Dad

A dad is a dad is a dad whether your kid is two days or twenty years old, whether they become a professional athlete or develop dyslexia, whether they have kids of their own, whether you're rich or poor, married or single, a birth-, adopted- or step-parent, gay or straight, American or Afghani. Sure, trends shift and cultures evolve, but what it means to be a father at the very core of things is immutable. Just as motherhood does for women, fatherhood connects us to our distant past and to every generation that will come after us.
