Ten Hut! Attention, Dad!

Ten Hut! Attention, Dad!

Books and web site searching aside, do you crave a more interactive approach to learning about how to be a great, new dad? Well, you may be aware, but boot camp nowadays is not just for the up and coming soldier.

Boot Camp for New Dads was founded in 1990 and is offered in most states and internationally in Japan and Italy, so click here to find one near you! For a few hours of your time, you will learn from veteran dads through lecture, hands-on demonstrations and discussions. Just think, when you become an expert, you can help new dads.

You can get through the messy diaper changes and midnight screaming—and these dads will prove it to you! You will walk away knowing much more than you could read in a book, after getting advice straight from real dads and practicing your skills on their real-live babies.
