Do you think a new mom or dad might benefit from some hands-on, pointed training before they start their journey into parenthood? We make new drivers go through a lot of work before we put them behind the wheel alone, right? So why not give new parents the same kind of opportunity? Today’s guest has been doing just that for over 20 years! Greg Bishop, founder of Boot Camp for New Dads , stops by to talk about this grassroots program that has expanded across the globe to over 300,000 new dads! He also share information about the content-rich resources on his website, Dads Adventure , which is loaded with practical, useful information. And for you mom, fear not – Greg’s incredible team is developing some terrific programs just for you! Check out theirNew Moms Hearts and Minds Project. It offers terrific tools to continue the road to great communication with your spouse.
Boot Camp for Dads originally started as a simple way for a few new dads to pass on some common-sense wisdom to a group of soon-to-be dads. Covering baby topics, emotional (yep, guys have emotions!) issues, and addressing the realities of what many moms and dads sometimes struggle with, the Camps have exploded across the United States and abroad. Tune in for more about some wonderful programs for moms and dads – including the MOST important thing Greg tells all new parents.
Finding he was adept at handling crying babies, Greg Bishop ended up speaking to other men in the local hospital, sharing his baby-holding secrets with his fellow new fathers From there, his experiences and advice expanded, eventually turning into the bootcamp he runs today!
This is not only an informative show for new parents. It’s also a great reminder for parents of all ages about the importance of navigating the parenthood journey as a team!
