Commando Dad My Baba 13 August, 2012 X - Blogger Neil Sinclair is author of Commando Dad, a practical guide to parenting for new dads, based on the army’s Basic Battle Skills manual. Neil has been a Royal Engineer Commando, PE teacher, security guard at the UK Mission to the UN in New York, a PCSO with the Metropolitan Police and a registered childminder. However, he professes that his most demanding job to date – and the inspiration behind Commando Dad – has been his role as stay at home dad to his three troopers: Samuel, Jude and Liberty. A passionate advocate of dads, Neil believes there should be more opportunities for experienced dads to pass on their skills and so experience and advice to new recruits to fatherhood. This is one of the reasons he created the Commando Dad website – www.commandodad.com – that not only features ‘how to’ videos and useful resources for new dads, but also busy forums where dads are able to share tips, give advice and support one another.
