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 […]

Sleeps With the Fishes

by Pat Jacobs
sleeps with the fishes

At 3 months old, my son had a pretty good streak of sleeping through the night. My wife was happy, I was rested, and all was right with the world. Then we went to a neighborhood pig roast. At this pig roast were three of our friends with new bundles of joy just like us. […]

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. When I became a father for the first time I was somewhat relieved […]

by RC Liley

After extensive research and numerous comparison tests, I have compiled the healthiest fast food restaurants for our children. To some, the results might be shocking, while it may come as no surprise to others. With all of the claims made on billboards, tv, and magazines, it’s hard to know what truly is best when it comes […]

The Do’s and Don’ts of Visiting a Newborn and His/Her Family

by Tanel Jappinen

Although I have plenty of friends with little kids, I have never felt the urge to visit them straight out of hospital. This may be a guy thing or I just don’t think much of other people’s newborns. As if becoming parents wasn’t hectic enough, now people want to visit us?! Depending on you, this […]

What is Your Legacy: The 14th Annual Fathers Conference

by Mike Andrews Jr

For the past 3 years I have been fortunate to be able to attend the Father’s Conference put on by a wonderful Detroit based organization known at the Partnership for Dads. I arrived at the Oakland Schools building here in Oakland County, Michigan at 8:30am. Once I checked in the first thing I saw was the sparkling white […]

Snappy Answers to Stupid At-Home Dad Questions

by Kevin McKeever

Much to my mother’s chagrin, I owe a great deal of my sarcastic sense of humor to my childhood overindulgence in the usual gang of idiots at Mad Magazine. Where would I have been without Al Jaffee’s back page fold-in, Mort Drucker’s movie and TV satires, Sergio Aragones’ margin gags, Don Martin’s “Adventures of Captain Klutz” and the rest? Probably on […]

Help Dads Who Change Diapers

by Scotty Schrier

Dreams are funny things. They drive us, ethereal as they may be. They give us something semi-tangible to shoot for. If we didn’t all have dreams, we wouldn’t have New Year’s Resolutions. Those are just little dreams we’d like to achieve. But, sometimes we have bigger ones. Back in 2009, I had a vision. It […]

My 2 Year Old Is Addicted to Video Games

by Chris Bernholdt

When I was a kid, my parents didn’t follow the norm. Most of my friends had Atari. Some of them had Coleco Vision and I had a gaming system created by Bally, the same company that made pinball machines.  No one I knew ever heard of the games my brothers and I played so when my friends […]
