When Time is Short – Boot Camp for New Dads Shares Strategies for New Fathers Working Long Hours

July 28, 2010

Greg Bishop, founder of Boot Camp for New Dads, a non-profit orientation program for fathers-to-be, operating in more than 260 hospitals, clinics, schools, fire stations and churches around North America and internationally, and author of two books on fathering, provides new fathers with tips for spending at least a few hours a week with their baby.

Bishop offers strategies from the more than 200,000 new dads that have gone through Boot Camp in his second book, Crash Course for New Dads:  Tools, Checklists and Cheat Sheets on how dads can spend time with their babies even though they work long hours or frequently travel away from home:

·     Do everything you can to make sure you are there for your baby’s birth. 

·     Change that first diaper.  Make the time you do have with your baby count as much as possible.  Set the tone that you are here to be a player and get involved early.

·     Strive for solutions that enable you to spend time with your child.  Figure out how to work from home if possible, even if it is just once a week.

·     When you are home, make sure you spend time alone with your baby.  Don’t let your limited experience caring for your baby limit you.  Send mom out for an afternoon and just do it.

·     Play with your baby before you leave in the morning and just after you get home.  Many dads report that their babies sleep longer if they play with them at night.

·     Keep your baby’s picture where you’ll see it often and keep him/her in mind.

·     Call mom and catch up on your baby’s antics of the day.

·     Use technology!  Have mom hold the phone to your baby’s ear so you can talk to him/her.  Ask her to send pictures to your cell phone or email.

·     Be really creative.  A young father who was deployed to Iraq recorded himself singing a dozen nursery rhymes which his wife plays for their baby every day so that their baby will recognize dad’s voice when he returns.

“Today’s economic realities create difficult circumstances.  Many careers demand long work hours; your new baby will add to your financial requirements and your mate is going to be out of commission as an income generator for at least a little while,” explained Bishop. “Yes, it’s going to be an ongoing challenge, but if fathers work at spending time with their baby, it’s the most rewarding challenge they will ever take on.”


Bishop’s first book, Hit the Ground Crawling, covers work balance, being a dad, caring for a new mom and much more.  Both books are available online at


New Dads Learn What to Expect at Boot Camp Workshops

Dads-to-be will be better equipped to face the challenges and opportunities of fatherhood after attending a Boot Camp “hands on” educational workshop. Men attend the class when they are expecting their first baby, and are joined in the workshop by “veterans” who had previously attended and have returned with their two to four-month-old baby in tow.  They are able to give the dads-to-be a realistic idea of what to do and what to expect when their first baby comes.  For many men attending, it’s their first time holding a baby.

Boot Camp for New Dads        

Now celebrating their 18th year, Boot Camp for New Dads is nationally acclaimed as the “Best Practice” for preparing men to be fathers and has been named a U.S. Navy Model Program.  Boot Camp for New Dads has prepared more than 200,000 men for fatherhood over the years. 


With more than 4.1 million births last year alone (National Center for Health Statistics), and approximately 1.5 million men becoming new dads every year, it’s more important than ever for fathers to realize that being a “good provider” is only part of the very central role they have in their children’s lives.

JFK Airport: Short and Long Term Parking Options

March 1, 2010

When we are flying to exotic places for vacation, or even stressful conferences for work, the last thing we need is more stress or more hassles. Getting transportation to and from the airport can be just that. Buses are unreliable, and carrying your luggage on them can prove problematic. Even trains can be delayed, making you miss your flight. While taxis and car services can be convenient, they are very expensive. It seems that the only surefire way of making it to the airport on time at an affordable price is to take control of the wheel and drive yourself.

Not so fast, you might say, what about the hassle of driving to and from the airport and dealing with finding affordable parking? We have all been there, circling around the airport, searching for a lot that is not going to break the bank, to no avail. So we head back to the airport parking lot, since we do not want to waste any more time, and pay the high airport lot prices just because we are scared of missing our flight. Well, not anymore! Now you can search online and find airport parking lots near dozens of airports in the country for discount prices. Online sites provide detailed information of all the lots in the vicinity of the airport with short and long term parking options available. They also give addresses and directions to the lots for your convenience. The best part of it all is that you can reserve a spot online. We all love making reservations; they give us a sense of accomplishment, completion, and best of all, a guarantee.

JFK Airport has two parking lot options available off-site: SmartPark JFK and AirPark JFK. Both lots are less than a mile from the airport, and provide a shuttle service to and from the airport. If you are worried about your luggage, don’t be, they also offer curb-to-curb services as well as luggage assistance. The details provided online are comprehensive, and they even have addresses and driving directions to the lot of your choice.

Avoid the hassles of airport transportation and parking onsite, by finding a JFK airport parking rate online today!

Cessna 150 short landing

December 8, 2009

How to land a Cessna 150 properly. Had about a 10kt headwind. I could have stopped a few feet shorter but I was in the right seat and the brake linkage was a bit mushy! I was able to make the first taxiway if you can call it that- not normally used for landing in this direction. If you listen when turning off the tower lady says “nice job!”
Kids- do not try this at home.
