Share your Stories | The Practical Dads

Please share your stories

‘Communication is a two way thing’, said no man ever. However, here at The Practical Dads we definitely want you to share what you have been through. The Practical Dads is not just a ‘look at me and how great we are’ site. We want to hear your stories and share them so we can learn from you too. After all, two of us only have newborn babies!

This site is a great way for us to share with you and if you want to share in return, send your article to us at thepracticaldads.gmail.com. The article could be about absolutely anything to do with being a Dad.  It doesn’t even have to be about babies. We are looking for articles to publish from Dads who have experienced something funny, worrying, scary or just downright disgusting.
