Stay-At-Home Dads More Likely to Divorce?

by Al Watts

Time’s Healthland reported last month that stay-at-home dads are more likely to divorce. It is NOT TRUE. What’s even worse is the title they chose for the URL. That is downright shameful. The article, which has been picked up by several other sources, refers to a study led by Dr. Liana Sayer of Ohio State […]

What I have in common with Barack Obama

by Al Watts

Barack Obama is an attorney from Harvard who is pretty good at basketball and has recently kicked his smoking habit. I am an 8 year at-home dad from Iowa State who can rarely hit a jump shot and have never smoked since my asthma already sufficiently limits my capacity to breath. There is one thing […]

The Scare

by Why Is Daddy Crying?

This past week the wife and I had “the scare.” You know…the one where you realize it’s been a while since the wife had her monthly visitor and there could be a little something brewing in the oven. Yeah…that’s the one. We already have two little bastards – a six-year-old girl who can have you […]

AtHomeDad.org Donated to Daddyshome

by Al Watts

Today, I am thrilled to announce that AtHomeDad.org, the most popular forum for stay-at-home dads on the web, has been donated to Daddyshome, Inc., The National At-Home Dad Network. This is a monumental day in the history of the at-home dad community. But it all started back in 2005. The Annual At-Home Dad’s Convention had […]

Role Reversal

by Shannon Carpenter

The total role reversal of this is not lost on me.  It would be almost comical if it wasn’t dragging feelings of inadequacy on my part. My wife starts a new job today thus enabling the kids and I to continue to stalk Dora the Explorer on every channel she might ever appear on.  I […]

Rock It Like a Hurricane

by Shannon Carpenter

I push a stroller.  Check that.  I rock a stroller.  I rock that 4 wheeled double seating behemoth like a mofo.  I rock that thing like Mick Jagger rocks a stadium.  I rock my stoller like  Takeru Kobayashi rocks a hot dog (he’s the Japanese hot dog eating champ.)  I have put all pretenses aside brothers, […]

Raising Twins

by Joe Agro

Although parenting is considered by most to be a woman’s realm, there is a growing movement toward the acceptance of dads raising their children.  And, if you’re reading this, you’ve probably already seen a cultural shift in family dynamics.  More men are becoming their family’s primary caretaker (or at least taking a more active parenting […]

A is better than a B, or is it?

by Mbecker

Ok, so last week my oldest was in the middle of middle school basketball tryouts. She made the A team last year as a seventh grader. That whole week I kept running down the girls and thinking about where she would get placed. Figured she would make the A team, but just was hoping that […]

Boys Where Prohibited

by Mbecker

Sunday afternoon I was performing my normal duties as unpaid taxi driver when something was said that made me stop and realize that not everyone is as old as I am. My daughter, Madison was riding “shotgun” because she is now old enough to do so. She had switched off my “80’s on 8″(for those […]

by Shannon Carpenter

I resent the smartphone.  There, I said it.  I don’t care what anyone thinks of me.  I don’t care how many hateful comments that I get.  I don’t care if a bunch of Iphone users come to my home and give me a Code Red like Full Metal Jacket.  But a piece of advice brothers, […]
