Parenting books for new Dads
Its October and I call October the time of pregnancies and new babies. As I scroll through my Facebook and Instagram I see so many friends becoming new parents and celebrating the birth of their new beautiful child into the world. Throughout the last couple months, I have been reading many book and studies on how early parenting can leave a big influence on how you turned out as a person. In the first five years of life, your child’s brain develops more and faster than at any other time in their life.  Some factors such as socialising skills, confidence, positive tendencies and negative tendencies are built within this time. Studies have shown that sooner fathers begin bonding with their little baby, the happier the forthcoming for the entire family. Fathers which play and interact with their babies from the beginning not only enhance their child's physical and mental progress significantly more than parents which don’t "join in", but hands-on dads also agonize from stress less . "Fathers can attune to their babies, to become familiar with them, their likes and dislikes, and therefore increase their confidence with the baby," insists Helen Hans, a postnatal leader with the UK's National Childcare Trust.
Reading things like this made me realise the importance of being a good father at the vital times of the baby’s upbringing. So what my aim is to do within this blog is find out what are the parenting books out their to help teach parenting and prepare us for the future of out children. Although there are a lot of different books out there in the market, I will try formulate the best parenting books for dads. Sometimes its not all about the cute baby onesies, or the cute new strollers. Sometimes the basics, the fundamentals are more important than the materialistic possessions.
So here are some of mine and the internets favourite parenting books for new dads and why .
