A Convention for the People, by the People

by Chris Bernholdt

I happened upon the National At Home Dad Network Convention by chance. I had been feeling alone after moving to a city where I didn’t know anyone craving contact from other stay at home dads like myself. The hard part was finding them. I thought to myself that surely there must be some sort of […]

The #1 Mistake We Made As New Parents and How We Fixed It

by Tanel Jappinen

Becoming new parents is one of the best things that has happened to us, but it almost cost us our marriage. I’ve been in a romantic relationship with my wife since high school – that’s 14 years! I’ve never considered us a “model couple,” but we’ve always matched well. We laugh and have fun together, we’re […]

Boys, Come Date My Daughters

by Chris Bernholdt

I grew up in a house full of brothers. There were black eyes and broken windows, a garage overflowing with every sports related implement and a fridge that had to be stocked constantly as our bodies grew and our appetites remained ravenous.

I’m driving home from my first National At-Home Dad Network Convention, high as a kite. I can’t stop talking about it and, fortunately, I have my wife with me to smile and nod at my enthusiasm. I leap from one subject to the next, remembering the sessions and interactions and just the general feeling of […]

A Thank You to My Wife and Working Parents Everywhere

by Bryan Alkire

  To My Wife, Thank you. I really mean it, thank you. Sometimes, as I focus on my life as a Stay At Home Dad and the sacrifices I have made in this role, I lose sight of the sacrifices you have made. I get wrapped up in the kids, their appointments and play dates. […]

That’s So Wow!

by Joël Lëoj

As most of my friends and family know, I volunteer a lot at my children’s school. That is an opportunity afforded to me by my husband since we both decided that I would be a stay-at-home dad and take care of our children. So, I became very involved at their school. Now, how involved, well […]
