Dads Groups: All Fathers Need Their Own Tribe Because Dads Matter! by Mike Prochaska
I have been a stay-at-home parent since my son was born in August 2012. Being a stay-at-home parent is a hard job in a world full of stay-at-home moms, but I was lucky to find the Chicago Dads Group. The Chicago Dads Group was my first tribe of stay-at-home dads and involved parents.
The Chicago Dads Group is a diverse community of fathers who take an active role in our children’s lives. We seek to create an online meetup group to bring fathers together in person. We'll meet several times per week, with our kids, at parks, playgrounds, museums, nature centers and parent-and-me classes across the Chicagoland area, both city and suburbs. We'll also organize parenting workshops and dads' night outs to give our members an opportunity to socialize, learn and support each other as we navigate parenthood.
There are not enough resources, social groups or services for dads. This is a destination for active dads! A diverse group with dads of all stripes: stay-at-home dads, dads with flexible schedules, work-from-home dads, freelance dads, working dads and involved fathers in and around the Chicagoland area.
