New York City's cool dads

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Being a dad is all the rage, the new king of cool. And, even though it's part of the job description, no one ever said it was a walk in the park.

Being a dad in real life might be even more challenging that it is portrayed in the movies.

Lance Somerfeld started the NYC Dads Group as a way for engaging fathers to spend quality time with their children. But he readily admits new dads have a difficult time stretched thin and can feel co-called Dad's Guilt.

According to a study by the families and work institute, dads born in the 1980s spend 4.1 hours a day with their kids -- double the amount of time from dads of the 1970s.

In another study that appeared in the journal fathering, 77 percent of men said being a good father is important, while only 49 percent said that about their own career.

Dr. Jeff Gardere says those stats are becoming the new normal.

"If you're a good father, reality is there is never enough time because you can always do more," Dr. Gardere says. "So, if you're thinking about that if you know can improve as dad then certainly will have that guilt of not spending enough time."

    Fox 5 found that romance is almost completely alive and well in Harlem. The notion of one a soul mate, your better half, the one and only is thriving. Maybe have Cinderella or rather reality television to thank for this notion.Sadly, new research shows if you believe your partner is your soul mate your expectations may be to high when times get tough.
