« I’m very worried, a lot of fathers out there who just don’t know what to do and they don’t. « I don’t know where to go, » says the Duke.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have expressed concern that fathers may need more assistance when talking to men whose parenting skills have been strengthened through charity classes.
William and Kate, who have three children, heard about four men who benefited from courses from Future Men, a London-based charity that supports around 500 fathers and their partners each year.
The courses focus on different aspects of fatherhood, from father-child relationships to practical and emotional skills that enable men to take care of themselves, their partner and their baby.

The Duke of Cambridge said he was concerned that some new fathers « just don’t know what to do » and « don’t know where to go » for assistance during the video call.
The development in the first few years is one of the most important pillars of the Duchess’ public work and a central aspect of the national survey « Five Big Questions » on this topic, which she commissioned and which is expected to be published next week.
During the video call, William asked the fathers, « How does Future Men find some of these other guys out there who don’t have the Knowing, or the bare minimum, if you want to search and be able to find services like Future Men to build on a happy future as a father?
« Because I’m very worried, a lot of fathers out there who just don’t know what to do and they don’t know where to go. And they may not have that good foundation, foundation, or support to know what to do. «
In response to the Duchess, who asked about the challenges of family life, especially during the lockdown, the men described their experience of dealing with their child’s sleep patterns as a positive role model.
One of the fathers, Sarit Chaturvedi, said, « Parenthood is probably the only kind of job if you can call it [a job] – it’s a very, very difficult job – that we don’t get hands – when we approach at.
« You know, every other job you put in is shown you the ropes. At the time when it’s completely new to you, being a parent for the first time is very scary. «
Kate said, « Fathers are so important that asking for help and advice shouldn’t be a bad thing. «
Another father, Peter Sen, said, « I think it was a blessing and a curse to be home. A blessing that I can see every part of his development and that’s a real joy and no matter how bad or bad he sleeps, he always wakes up with a big smile on his face. «
William asked the men if their communities and society at large appreciated being a father.
Darren Smith, who is married to a son named Messiah, said: « I strongly believe that, especially as a younger father, I have a powerful influence on you, the community, the society around me. . .
« We are superheroes for these children, we are their role models. You know, they see us as « okay, I wanna be this way dad ». . My son tells me every day, « Dad, I want to be like you. « . «
