Hello people, I have more questions, I am a father of a young daughter. As she is growing up I guess I might need more information. I would like to find out if anyone have any information or where I can discuss about parenthood, childhood, growing pains and all these related discussions. It would be good if you would be give me a private message and provide me with the link of the forum, website or blog regarding there or related discussions. Thanks in advance.

Good Morning, It's so very nice to see dad's seeking out this kind of info! I'm a first time mom and I almost LIVE by the articles in the Parent's Magazine. You can go on line for that too at Parents.com. Also, those books, "What to expect..." are great! I would suggest purchasing the one for toddlers. OR, yes, you can even go on line for that, whattoexpect.com. Also, Lifestyle, MSN Family is a good site. For discussions and forums, try iVillage.com. These are all great sites for you to use if you need advise, ideas, direction... If you can, I highly suggest checking out local libraries for playgroups and support groups. Believe it or not, a Mommy & Me or in your case, a Daddy & Me, kind of class or group will help both you and your daughter. Also, your Pedi's office may have some ideas in this area! Good Luck!

thanks Raven7317, Honestly I thought I knew enough, however when things start to pop up, I find myself lacking. Sometime I rely too much on my wife. My daughter is on the stage where she do not want to sleep. I have watch super nanny and those show. Honestly I do not see how it work on them. I really need to try something different. A forum would be great to share experience. I guess in my country daddy and me support group is not common at all. I might very be the one that form such a group in my community. I would think about it.

Mylot is actually a good place to discuss parenting issues. You'll find that there are a bunch of parents on here. Tons of stay at home moms. All you would have to do is start a discussion on any parenting issue and many would offer their advice and experience. You also could go to parenting.com where there would be tons of resources for any stages of childhood.

I have to agree ravinskye, Mylot is a place where you can get a lot information however if you really want some details then you better go to where the discussion is more focus. like in parenthood forums. However I would like to find some decent forum. I think I would go to parents.com to check it out. Cheers and thanks again.

Am impressed iwrite. Active fathering is a good contribution to develop of some areas for your daughter. A child/children who have highly involved father/s become better at solving problems, and handling frustrations, more socially skilled, more understanding of other's feelings and better at dealing with a variety of people. Active fathering also contributes to a child's sense of humor, attention span and eagerness to explore and learn... You are on the right track! Keep up the good work..

Well amazingheart, I am not too sure what to be impressed about, anyway, I am facing some challenge with my child's habit. While I have a set of rules for her, I cannot monitor over all the time. As she is the first and only grandchild on both side of the family. So you can imagine the fuss over her. So sometime both our parents kind of spoils her. Claiming she is too young to understand. However I am convince she understands and determine to maintain some form of discipline over her. While she is my pride and joy and she does means the world to me. I just hope that she would grow up healthy and happy. There are times where she work her charms on you and you just melt. I think you would know what I mean.
