For many new dads fatherhood is an overwhelming experience. The sleepless nights, the daily routine of baby care fitted in around the normal daily employment. Then as the baby starts to get older the challenges don't really go away they just grow and develop as your child grows. It is true that there is a lot of help available for parents. The problem for Dads is that so much of the help is targeted at Mums. No-one would deny that Mums have enormous parenting challenges to face but it is time that we recognized that Dads need help and support just as much as Mums do. One of the best ways to help Dads cope with parenting is to enable them to connect with other Dad's going through the same experience. Here is a list of four social networking sites just for Dads
http://newdadsnetwork.com - This site describes itself as a private social network for expectant and new dads. You can chat with other members, post photos and videos, and most importantly learn from other Dads who have been through these experiences before you.
http://lifeofdad.com - Life of Dad features thousands of blogs, videos, podcasts from Dads all over the world. You can even sign up as a blogger on the site and share your fatherhood experiences with the world.
