Fatherhood

  1. 1. The Jung and the Restless Elizabeth, TJ, and Jameela FATHERHOOD
  2. 2. Preparing for Fatherhood
  3. 3. ● The journey of becoming a father is different for everyone. Some partners are fearful, some are excited. There is no “right” way to feel.
  4. 4. ● Some men experience sympathetic pregnancy symptoms, know as “Couvade Syndrome.” The men may gain weight, crave foods, or have mood swings.
  5. 5. ● ● When a woman becomes pregnant, her partner also undergoes a wide range of emotional changes. After finding out they will be a father, men often reflect upon their own childhood to form an idea of how they do or do not want to raise their child.
  6. 6. ● ● Sometimes the mother and father-to-be are not married or in a relationship. The expectant father and mother must communicate and be honest about the baby. The father can still be active during the pregnancy by helping plan the birth, driving the mother to doctor's appointments, or providing financial support.
  7. 7. The Cost of Fatherhood
  8. 8. ● ● ● Financial concerns are an issue for most parents-tobe. An article in the NY Times estimated the cost of raising an infant to the age seventeen to be $221,000. Some women do not work or have jobs allowing maternity leave. This leaves parents with an unfair decision to make. The mother, especially if she is nursing, will need to stay home with the baby. While most people agree that is what is best for the family's emotional well-being, it can inflict serious damage in the financial department.
  9. 9. ● After the baby is born, expenses keep popping up. Diapers, bigger clothes, toys, bottles, blankets, and a million other things will be needed. That is in addition to everything already paid, like a mortgage, utilities, car payment, or phone service. Struggling families are forced to make compromises. Some parents go without a lot of seemingly necessary items just so their child can have nice things.
  10. 10. Bringing Home Baby
  11. 11. ● ● Sometimes the father is active and involved from conception. There are many things a father can do to form a healthy, close bond with his newborn. The father should offer support and assistance to the mother. Giving birth is extremely painful and physically and mentally exhausting. The mother will be feeling a little off because of hormonal fluctuations. She will need a strong support system.
  12. 12. ● Being a father means getting involved. A father should participate in feedings and changings. Skin-to-skin contact is optimal for creating that close bond. It is also calming for the parent and baby. Some parents prefer the use of a sling. This practice, called Kangaroo Care, is wonderful for everyone. The physical and emotional development of the newborn is supplemented by it and it is used to treat and comfort premature babies and those born with drug addictions or illnesses.
  13. 13. ● ● As the newborn grows into an infant, the father has more opportunities for play time. Infants are really good copy cats and love to babble along with what daddy is saying. A classic game of peekaboo will elicit deep belly laughs from the baby and entertain daddy, as well.
  14. 14. Toddlers
  15. 15. ● Fathering a toddler brings a new set of challenges. The sweet, immobile baby from a few months ago will now be cruising around the house, getting into everything and destroying it. This is a good age to begin enforcing rules. The child's safety is at risk if there are no limitations in the house.
  16. 16. ● ● ● The father and mother should communicate openly about how they will discipline their child. Punishments must be age and child appropriate. Discipline must be swift and consistent for the child to understand it.
  17. 17. ● Toddlers are not only capable of creating chaos, they are also at an age where they can begin to help. The father can boost a child's self-esteem and create a sense of work ethic at this young age by requesting the toddler's assistance. Small tasks, like putting trash in the garbage can or picking up their own toys, can teach the child responsibilities while making the child feel very important and loved.
  18. 18. ● Praise for good behaviors and actions not only bolsters the child's ego, but builds a trusting relationship between child and father. The dad will be genuinely thankful when the child helps him out. The child will be proud and feel like a “big kid.”
  19. 19. ● The concept of fatherhood changes many times for each dad. A good father takes cues from his child and is nurturing but firm, caring, consistent, and most of all, loving. No matter what the child does or how frustrating he becomes as a teenager, a good father loves his child and knows with a certainty that everything will work out just fine.
