Hello, here is what my husband and I are doing. Feel free to give your voice
It's him writing here below:
I am Tony, proud father of a 13 months old baby girl! She has changed my life so much for good! And as the majority of you know, for this "good" change, I had, we had to go through less good moments of parenting
Indeed, when my wife came back home from the maternity, boy was this new! The cries, the feeding, recovering from the birth, the cries, the sleep, the cries, the fears... oh man that wasn't easy. Sounds familiar?
Guess what, not only I discovered we should not be ashamed of saying that having a newborn is exhausting, overwhelming, but almost everyone around me felt the same BUT THE MAJORITY NEVER SAY IT EXPLICITELY. And the same majority never told the next ones what they will actually go through: NICE PICTURES OF SLEEPING BABIES ARE SO MISLEADING
So since that day, I decided to share my experience as a new parent, to help parents-to-be get better prepared to their new life.
If you have lived the same and feel this is legitimate, YOU CAN HELP by giving your own feedback and experience in the form here. It will litteraly take 5 to 10 minutes of your time only, and will help others EVERY DAY during months!
Why in a form, would you tell me? Well, once I will get the answers of all young parents that have helped, I will review them and use them in an illustrated book as testimonies, in parallel to my experience. If you want to participate and make future parents switch from insecure genitors to successful young parent by learning how to take care of their new life with a baby, please continue!
If you are not a parent yet but want a baby or are wating for a baby, just answer the first questions, it will help us know what are your main questions.
In the end of the form, I have given the link of a very funny comic I found on the Oatmeal. ALL ANSWERS WILL BE LET OPEN TO PUBLIC! See summary of responses on how other parents feel too! The link is available at the end of the form.
THANK YOU AND LET'S GO !
So I am not allowed to put the link of our home made google form.
Do you think this is worth it so the moderators should allow it?
