Welcome to Dallas Dads Group, we are glad you have found us. I am a father of two young boys and we live in Waxahachie. My wife and I moved from Illinois in 2009 to the great state of Texas to be closer to family and find more affordable housing than we could find in Chicago. Due to our work schedules, we made the decision for me to stay at home with our children and take on the primary caretaker role. Months turned into years and one of my greatest difficulties was finding a place to take my boys to interact with other kids and I could find some adult conversation. Every dads’ group I found was inactive and the more I looked, the more I realized how few opportunities fathers have to spend solo time with their children while hanging out with other guys.
Think of it, children growing up thinking it was normal to be hanging out with not only their father, but having adventures among multiple involved fathers. That is why I started Dallas Dads Group. I believe that mothers and fathers are equally capable parents and it is time for fathers to find their own space within this mom-centric world of raising children. If you are still reading this, I would bet that you think that way, too. Dallas Dads Group is in the hands of its members. We will continue to set up Meetups and look for more opportunities to gain visibility with the ultimate goal of reaching more fathers, but any member can post a get together on our calendar. We want fathers to be able to find other dads in their area and create memories with their children. We do not care what your life situation is, the only requirement to be a Dallas Dad is to be a guy who wants to spend time with his children and hang out with some other guys while doing it. Dallas Dads Group will be as great as we all make it. We do not want this to be another dads’ group that becomes inactive as soon as our kids get older. We want to build a foundation that fathers can use in a year, in five years, and in twenty years. Thanks for checking us out and I hope to meet you and your kiddos soon.
