Everyone told you being a Dad would be hard, right? Many probably even said, “Nothing can prepare you…” And, man, they were so right. There’s nothing we can tell you that will make the transition to being a Dad a smooth and easy one, but we can help you figure out how to be more involved, more present, and more engaged as a parent and a partner. That’s what we’re aiming to do in this series of Daddy Downloads from The Man Rules podcast.

You can listen to each episode in the same amount of time it takes your toddler to color the cat’s paws with permanent marker, drop your phone in the toilet, break your favorite coffee mug, and give herself a black eye by stumbling into a doorknob. (i.e. about five minutes.) Dan offers three no-nonsense tips on how to define your role as a Dad, and be the kind of father you want to be.

In this, our first Daddy Download, Dan dives into the issue of true co-parenting. Dads these days are likely to be much more involved in their children’s lives than their fathers’ were. But, sometimes stigmas about who should perform childcare duties (i.e. the woman, or the “more feminine” partner) still leave many Dads feeling left out. Dan shares three tips on how to stay engaged as both a parent and partner after you’ve had a child.
