As most readers of the blog know, the blog site is an extension of our meet up group – a physical community of caring, nurturing, and competent dads that enjoy getting together with other dads all across the NY metro area with our kids in tow. Today, was a Very proud moment for our community of dads! We just welcomed Ari M., a new dad with a child who is only 4 days old. He is the 500th member of the NYC Dads Group! Recently, we have been welcoming an influx of new members who are dads of little ones like Ari (kids under 4 months old) as well as expectant fathers – just a true testament to the changing tides of dads getting involved (and seeking out resources) early and often with being an equal partner in parenting. 500 Strong!
