We need to highlight one of the most meaningful experiences an at-home dad can have – attending the annual at-home dads convention! We speak from experience because Matt & I have attended the past three years & need to mention – the workshops are meaningful and educational, it’s a wonderful opportunity to connect & share best practices with dads from across the country, and you leave recharged about being the best dad you can be. On the fence about attending? Here’s our review from a past convention! Or read our friend Lisa’s (aka Parent DuJour) recent review!
Registration is now open for the 17th Annual At-Home Dads Convention. The annual event is organized by our friends at The National At-Home Dad Network (formally Daddyshome, Inc.), and will be held in the Washington, D.C. area on Saturday, Oct. 6. D.C. is an easy trip from the New York Metro area, so fellas, start planning your road trip now!
