Becoming a dad doesn’t mean that you stop being a guy. It definitely changes things, but it doesn’t require you to surrender yourself to a life of mini-vans and diapers. You can still have ambitions, interests, and good taste. The Father Life believes that being a great dad can go hand-in-hand with being a great guy! And that’s what The Father Life is all about. They are the only men’s magazine geared toward fathers; a magazine for guys who work hard, play hard, and father hard!
