Entitled

by Bruce Sallan

Where and when did it seem that everyone felt entitled? Entitled to an education, happiness, college, a home, every new tech toy, and a new car now and then, etc. I know the answer, as it was an evolution and change in attitude that began in the sixties, in my opinion. Some might say it […]

Another Set Back For At Home Parents

by Robb Tavill

While making dinner for my boy/girl twins April 12, 2012, I was listening to Brian Williams as he was doing the Nightly News on NBC.  All of a sudden I hear a story about the presidential campaign that just really chapped my hide.

Get Adventourous

by Shannon Carpenter

What do you do during the day?  That is probably one of the biggest questions that I get as an at home dad.  I could be witty and tell them that I constantly plan for the zombie apocalypse but chances are that they won’t understand which is also why they will be the first victims […]

by Bruce Sallan

As a dad advocate that means I’m also a man advocate. Years of doing “men’s work” have taught me much, but top of the list is the fact that men need other men in their lives. A great way to have men in your life is to be part of a men’s group. There are […]

Green Eggs and Painting

by Shannon Carpenter

I’m being a bit cranky.  In fact, I’m being a down right ass today.  It’s not even a righteous anger, an anger that you can get behind.  An anger that has some sort of morality basis to it.  Like when I’m angry that my sports team loses because they can’t find it in their hearts […]

Dads Don’t Babysit

by Chad Welch

So hopefully by now you have heard about the Dads Don’t Babysit campaign calling for the Census to change the way they report child care. Specifically to not count dads as “alternative child care” equal to grandparents or a neighbor watching the kids. And by now you have certainly signed the petition. But if you haven’t, well go […]
