Man of the House conducted a survey with 1,000 fathers that reveal that new fathers have a hard time transitioning to being a Dad.
Man of the House reports that 38% of Dads say that it has become more difficult for them to maintain friendships since becoming a father, and 45% say they have a difficult time maintaining an exercise routine.
From the article:
Dads relationships with their buddies often slip after the birth of a child, as two in five dads (38%) say it’s been difficult to maintain friendships since becoming a father. Younger dads struggle the most — over half (51%) of dads age 18-29 say they have had a hard time maintaining friendships since becoming a dad, while just over one third (36%) age 30 and over feel the same.
A large percentage of fathers also find it challenging to maintain a healthy lifestyle after the birth of their child. Nearly half (45%) of dads say they have become more health conscious since becoming a father, but the same percentage (45%) also say they have a difficult time maintaining an exercise routine.
