Becoming a father is considered by many as one of life’s most rewarding experiences but the transition into parenthood can also be challenging and a time when support from colleagues, family and friends is crucial.

Despite this, a new survey has found that around one in five men are losing friends in the first 12 months since becoming a dad.

And From Focus on the Family – The prevailing framework with which dads approach their role in the family is as an equal partnership with their wife.

Dads view their role as that of a team player with shared responsibility with their wife rather than split responsibility. Instead of taking sole ownership for the financial support of the family, many dads share this role with their wife.
