What we're about

LA Dads Group is a diverse community of fathers who take an active role in our children’s lives. We seek to create an online meetup group to bring fathers together in person. We'll meet several times per week, with our kids, at parks, playgrounds, museums, parent-and-me classes, and living rooms across the Los Angeles area. We'll also organize parenting workshops and dads-nights-out to give our members an opportunity to socialize, learn, and support each other as we navigate parenthood. There are not enough resources, social groups, or services for dads. This is a destination for active dads! A diverse group with dads of all stripes: Stay At Home Dads, Dads with flexible schedules, work from home dads, freelance dads, working dads, and involved fathers in and around the LA metro area to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their children.

Join us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/LADadsGroup), Twitter (https://twitter.com/ladadsgroup) & Instagram (http://instagram.com/ladadsgroup)!

The LA Dads Group is part of the City Dads Group (http://www.citydadsgroup.com/)

** Please note this group is strictly for Dads, we understand sometimes wives will join for their significant others but we encourage them to join on their own accord. We want this group to be a comfortable place for Dads to learn and talk about anything dad related.

Dads and kids stare slack-jawed at zooming model cars @ LACMA

Los Angeles County Museum of Art

The Metropolis toy car exhibit is a reliable kid-pleaser. Come join other dads and their children watching the toy cars race around this exhibit. We'll be meeting up at the exhibit for the 1:30-2:30 running of the cars, and then perhaps afterwards we'll explore other kid-friendly parts of the museum. Admission to LACMA is free for kids 17 and younger, and for one accompanying adult per child. Look for the "NextGen" desk to sign your kid up for this pass. http://www.lacma.org/kids-families/nexgen-fast-facts Parking for LACMA is located at the Pritzker Parking Garage on 6th St., just east of Fairfax Ave., and on the corner of Wilshire Blvd. at Spaulding Ave, and costs $16 http://www.lacma.org/directions There is also free 4-hour street parking on 6th street, east of Ogden Drive.

Tips and Tricks for Sleep Schedules from a Sleep Consultant

So everyone said that your baby would start sleeping through the night by 6 weeks and it would all be ok. But now your kid is almost 5 and he/she is still sleeping in your bed. We have all been there. Sleepness nights and mornings where there sun won't rise for another few hours. Join LA Dads Group for a PARENTS ONLY class on gentle sleep training techniques, age appropriate schedules, and tips and tricks to guiding your baby or toddler to sleep through the night and take restorative naps from an LA-based Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant.
