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 […]

Let’s All Make Assumptions

by Shannon Carpenter

I was talking to my sister, a SAHM.  She was excited because she knows a SAHD now just like her big brother.  She says he’s a great guy and the kids seem to get along really well.  She said she was about to give him her number so that they could do some playdates together […]

Buckles, Boosters and Backseats – Oh My!

by Aknapitsch

According to the CDC1, the most common cause of death for kids in the United States is injury from a motor vehicle collision.

Potty Training

by Aknapitsch

When my oldest was a baby, I thought I was interested in early potty training. Others would tell me that early potty training trains parents not children. I didn’t care! If I had to remind him every hour for a year, I would have done it to get the poop in the potty. Unfortunately, my […]

Just Do It

by Mike Bates "Domestic Engineer"

The All Pro Dad Breakfast, http://www.allprodad.com/, is a monthly breakfast meeting of profound impact. Dads and kids will meet, share breakfast, watch a video and have a discussion within the school atmosphere where a Dad is all to often not present because of work obligations. I initiated this process and was in the Principal’s Office more than when I was in school! I will be giving a reakout sessions at the upcoming AtHomeDad Convention on my All Pro Dad experiences.

Nature VS. Nurture

by DSass

In my never-ending quest to figure out how to raise my kids, I became aware of the book “Nurture Shock – New Thinking About Children.”  So I picked it up, prepared for some new-age psycho-babble about the never-ending Nature vs. Nurture debate in which everyone has a steadfast opinion and no middle ground can be […]

Sports..why do I care so much?

by Mbecker

I push my kids to be athletes! I am not proud of it…well, maybe sometimes. I think sports are important in a kid’s life and I want them to become conditioned and love sports like I did. Is there anything wrong with that? No…not until it goes over the edge. I like to teeter at […]
