Everything has changed: a late-night bottle has nothing to do with hanging out with the guys. You used to leave the house with just a wallet and keys - now you carry a bag with enough supplies, toys and extra socks to keep a small army cleaned, clothed and entertained. You are overly familiar with the adventures of ballerina pigs and amphibian martial artists. You get home from work then your real job begins. And every day, someone looks to you to know the world and guide them in it – but you’re still trying to figure it out for yourself. Welcome to fatherhood.
Father doesn’t always know best – but our experts do. From keynote speaker Dr. Michael Thompson, whose groundbreaking work looks at the ways boys have been raised to become the men – and fathers - they are now, to stay-at-home dads who are redefining the role of Mr. Mom, Why Fathers Matter is a day dedicated to dads.
All you want to know, from the science of fatherhood to the details of dads’ daily lives, in one place, for one day.
