Parenting can be challenging, and a network of others to bounce situations and problems off of is often the answer. Dads and non-birthing partners often get left out of the typical support such as - “moms groups” and other Social Media pages dedicated mostly to moms.
This new drop-in is for new and experienced dads to meet other dads, talk about life, partners and parenting and help each other out.
Kevin Pickett, a father of three busy, crazy and well-behaved-on-occasion kids and his wife Ashley, local parent educator, are launching this drop-in on Fathers Day weekend! Their combined experience of raising kids, owning a business and maintaining their marriage have driven them to want to help all families thrive too. In their 13 years as parents they have experienced every version of sleep arrangements, nighttime parenting, mental wellness and postpartum mood disorders, practicing positive and attachment focused care, full-term breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, marriage concerns and recovery of their relationship over and over.. Kevin & Ashley know how hard this is, and want other fathers to know they are supported and can thrive too!!
Come out to Boston Pizza on the 3rd Friday of each month from 7:30-9:30pm... grab a drink, and meet other dads and partners in Halton. Each date will have discussion topics related to fathering. Please RSVP via a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many to expect.
