Just thinking about how my journey as a dad has affected me and changed the way I look at the world.
It's easily the most beautiful blessing, and yet equally frustrating, and sometimes lonely, endeavour.
To all the dads and dads-to-be, remember take care of yourselves too. Talk to other guys, other dads. You don't have to go it alone. (Feel free to drop me a line!)...
Here's a piece I wrote last year for Nick Jr. about opening up some dadversation and seeking dadvice if you need it.
If you've got siblings, this ones for you.
I hope my boys will grow up to be like this 😪💪🏽👍🏽
One for the dads! Woohoo
We know that mums really do have a tough job. But we also know that a dad who’s feeling on top of things is better placed to be a supportive partner and involve...d dad – which is good for the entire family.
Many new dads feel overwhelmed by the responsibilities of fatherhood and the majority of dads don’t seek information or support. It’s why we’ve launched ‘Dadvice’, an Australian-first web series, which encourages new dads to look after themselves – and take action when they need to. Comedians Sammy J, Dave O'Neil, Lawrence Mooney and Ben Lomas are joined by a group of 12 regular dads who share all the ups and downs of becoming a father. The episodes tackle stress points like work, relationships and mates and highlight real-dad experiences in real time. To get some good #dadvice, cringe at dad jokes or watch the full series visit www.dadvice.org.au
I love the confidence and character that these individuals on the autism spectrum exude. Everyone is different, everyone has their own unique gifts, and this should be celebrated!
