Emerging Dad-Focused Parenting Websites Provide Fathers Feeling Stressed and Overwhelmed With Tools and Support to Learn How to Balance Work and Family
Parenting websites for dads seeking help and advice are on the trend in Australia, after a parenting desire for fathers to be more involved with the child rearing process.
Men generally think, work and play differently to women, so parenting advice that might be perfect for a new mum may not land quite right with a new dad.
With ongoing changes to traditional gender roles within the family, some modern fathers are finding it increasingly difficult to understand how to balance work and family. The transition to a more equal family structure, where both mum and dad work as well as spend quality time with children is leaving some parents feeling stressed and overwhelmed, with dads in particular having little or no conversational support in the same way mothers do.
According to Million Happy Dads – a company that dedicates itself to creating happier dads on a daily basis – about 30 per cent of fathers feel they are pressed for time, rushed or overwhelmed trying to juggle the work, family, life balance, and while support groups and forums for mothers are in abundance, there are less groups or leaders that fathers can turn to for help, coaching or more information. www.millionhappydads.com
“Men generally think, work and play differently to women, so parenting advice that might be perfect for a new mum may not land quite right with a new dad,” says Million Happy Dads founder and CEO, Mark Pereira. “A father feeling stressed and overwhelmed trying to juggle all his responsibilities may also respond and destress in a different way to a mother, and take comfort with another type of communication style.”
For the dad struggling to get a handle on how to balance work and family, Million Happy Dads offers courses that specifically help and guide modern fathers back to basics, so they can rebuild the right foundation needed to be able to tackle the parenting challenges ahead. They are all about fathering and the “24/7 Dad” where discussions include boyhood to manhood, dealing with anger, knowing one’s self-worth, family ties, improving communication skills, having fun with kids, and dealing with talks about sex, love and relationships. www.millionhappydads.com
According to Mark, many employers are under the myth that if a father spends more time with his family and less time on the job, their work will suffer but in reality, the opposite is true. “Fathers who balance work and home life are more focused at work, and less likely to call in sick, or develop stress related illnesses,” says Mark. “Parenting websites are really convenient and helpful for parents seeking guidance and support, or wanting to chat with another like-minded mum or dad with a similar style to childrearing. But the websites dedicated to fathers only that speak a language they can connect with are few and far between, and that’s how the concept for Million Happy Dads was born,” says Mark.
