Boot Camp for New Dads
Floyd's Boot Camp for New Dads offers soon-to-be fathers useful skills that will help them be better equipped to meet the challenges and responsibilities of parenthood. Hosted by veteran dads, the free workshop offers a casual atmosphere where new dads can ask questions they may not feel comfortable asking in other settings.
There are no boring lectures here. The 3-hour workshop is interactive. Men spend time in small groups with veteran dads who volunteer to help.
Participants will be given the book Crash Course for Dads-to-Be, which contains practical parenting advice from veteran dads.
The workshop covers the following topics:
- How to be involved in your baby's care
- Parenting as a team
- How to soothe a crying baby
- Baby blues vs. post-partum depression
- Newborn safety
Date: Jan. 25
Time: 9 a.m. - Noon
Location: Floyd EMS Headquarters, 500 Riverside Pkwy NE, Rome
Men typically attend the free workshop one to two months before their first baby arrives. Class size is limited and registration is required. Breakfast will be provided.
