Fatherhood Friday Fallon

The new host of “The Late Show” feels that being a dad trumps everything including his coveted holy grail late night slot. Jimmy Fallon became a dad in July 2013 and is still beaming from his introduction to fatherhood. He had a long struggle to have a child and ended up having his daughter, Wendy, through a surrogate.

“I can’t stop looking at her. When I’m not holding her, I’m looking at photos of her on my phone. She’s the coolest – the best thing to ever happen to me.” -Jimmy Fallon

“There’ll be nights when you’re sitting on your couch, and you’re with your beautiful wife, who you can’t believe married you, and your beautiful baby, who you feel endlessly grateful you were able to have. And your dog. You’re watching Real Housewives getting into fist-fights on TV. And you go, ‘How great is my life? I’m so happy right now.’- Jimmy Fallon

24:7 Dad eBook

Are you a full time dad or want to be?  Well, National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) has  a brand new series of eBooks to help dads. tips4raisinghealthykids

“The 24/7 Dad® To Go eBook Series”  is short and sweet snippets tackling issues we face such as marriage and relationships, child development, and specific fathering skills and discipline. Each eBook will be based upon the principles of NFI’s leading fatherhood program, 24/7 which is a fatherhood program used by many community-­based organizations in the U.S.  Its premise is that fatherhood is a skill-­based activity that dads can get better at with the right mix of knowledge and inspiration.

Each month there will be a new book. The first book in the series, “Tips for Raising Healthy Kids.”

Recent research confirms the strong link between father and child health. For example, children in father-­absent homes are twice as likely to be obese than children in two-­parent homes. Furthermore, a father’s involvement and parenting style is predictive of his children’s BMI, whereas a mother’s is not.

The content of “Tips for Raising Healthy Kids” has been compiled and enhanced from the proven fatherhood skill-­building resources that have been field-­tested for over a decade, according to NFI.

This eBook is designed for dads who:

  • want to live healthy and
  • raise healthy kids.


We teach you the tips and tools for:

  • getting and staying physically and mentally healthy,
  • raising healthy kids, and
  • leading your family in a healthy lifestyle.


Each eBook will be sold for $1.99 at NFI’s online resource center, FatherSOURCE, at
