Hi, I'm currently a stay-at-home dad of my 1-year old son. The past six months or so it seems like he's been pretty content with our daily routine of going for walks with our dog, playing indoors, swimming and music once a week, and the occasional visit to Studio Grow. I think he's getting to the age where some more social interaction with other kids his age would be good, but I'm not sure the best way to meet other parents. Ideally it would be great to find other stay-at-home dads. I saw that there was an East Bay Dads group, but looking at their calendar and forum, it seems like their most recent activities were over a year ago. So basically I'm asking if there is indeed a stay-at-home dad group in the East Bay, or if there are any other groups that wouldn't mind a dad in the mix. Any recommendations appreciated. Brian
Awhile back, someone posted on one of these lists that he was starting a group for fathers, and I've lost the contact info. If the group is still happening, I'd like to refer a father with a one year old daughter. Please repost! thanks, Bonnie
Hello fellow parents, I am a recently single Dad who has a daughter of 4 years. We currently have a close and loving relationship. She will begin living with me full time beginning this Oct. I am looking for advise/support in the following areas: a) contacting other single parents, particularly fathers about this challenge b) locating a childcare coop in the Oakland/Berkeley area c) the feasibility of starting a childcare coop in my neighborhood. thanks, alan
East Bay Dads is group of fathers with babies, toddlers and
pre-schoolers in the Oakland / Berkeley area. We meet every
Monday morning with our kids at a local park, museum, or other
place. Most Thursday mornings there is a hike for dads with kids
still young enough to go in a front- or backpack or jog stroller.
The group is free and open to anyone (some of us are full time
stay-at-home dads, others work part time and/or have flexible
work schedules). We welcome all dads in the East Bay to check
the schedule at www.eastbaydads.org
and come meet up with us!
Hi - I'm a stay at home Dad. I'm interested in playgroups or classes for my 6 month old son (only child). Many groups I see refer to Mommies so I'm not sure if a Daddy is ok too. Any suggestions on where my son and I can go so he can 'socialize' with other babies, while I socialize with parents (moms or dads)? A mixed group (ie moms and dads) would be great, as I don't want to be the odd man out (literally). Thanks! John
