Sign up for WHAT?:

HeadsUp Dad. A blog and a newsletter for now. Soon to become a vibrant and engaging parenting community built especially by a group of experienced Dads exclusively for fathers and fathers to be.

HeadsUp Dad is the next generation parenting community designed specifically for Highly Engaged and Active Dads.  At HeadsUp Dad, we put our own unique and genuine perspective back into parenting.

Traditional Family dynamics have been changing over the years— so much so that modern Fathers are increasingly evolving their roles from traditional bread winners to become nurturers, caregivers, primary support workers, cooks, cleaners, shuttlebus drivers, psycho-therapists, guidance counsellors and still breadwinners. You know it brother. We have a lot on our plate and we are expected to perform like Wayne Gretzky (I was going to say Tiger Woods but I may have ended up in the rough on that one).

To address the myriad of challenges facing the engaged and active Dads we are, we are going to need some help. HeadsUp Dad was created to tap into the power of community and help fathers work together to become the best of everything we can be. To that end, we are building a healthy support community for highly engaged and active Dads, wherever they may be. A resource pool of useful tools, interactive content, articles of interest and other illuminating stuff all designed to make life easier, a little less stressful and the whole world a better place. By connecting you with a powerful network of professional field experts and regular guys just like you, who have been through it all or are learning on the fly just like the rest of us, we are building a community support network like no other.

The newsletter and the website will feature helpful articles and editorial content written by professionals from a broad range of disciplines, and user generated content developed by a wide range of people from all walks of life and all corners of the world. Content includes useful tips and advice on everything from personal health and wellness to global awareness, food, nutrition, fun things to do with your kids on a rainy day and everything in between.

By joining us on this adventure, you and I are empowering Dads and “Dads to be” to learn, grow and become the best Fathers, husbands, and global citizens we can be.

We look forward to having you on board. Please bear with us as we iron out the kinks.
