What I love most is being a father to my six week old daughter. If I could drop everything and earn a living taking care of her, I would do it in a heartbeat. In fact, being able to spend more time with her is the reason I returned to school.

Still, babies are complicated and I continue to learn by taking lessons from educators like those on TakeLessons. My wife and I have already taken lessons on Labor and Delivery, Breastfeeding, Using Cloth Diapers, Newborn Care, Infant CPR, and more. We will continue to learn from the skills and knowledge of teachers as our daughter grows and moves through the stages of development. Soon, she’ll have her own teachers and she will have learned from our example how precious that relationship is.

Being a parent can change the world by producing a responsible, socially conscious citizen – a goal which is best achieved by learning from the ones who are already here.
