Father’s Day Questionnaire Results 2014
Each year, I ask my children to complete a Father’s Day questionnaire. In addition to answering questions about me, they have to draw a picture of me. I love reading their responses and seeing the drawings. It’s interesting to see how their perceptions of me change each year (click here to read last year’s post). X, 6 year-old son […] The post Father’s Day Questionnaire Results 2014 appeared first on Mocha Dad

If you’re sick of all the congratulatory Father’s Day posts that flooded the web all week, here’s your antidote: I was a drop-dead shitty dad yesterday. The morning started with me and Boone getting into an argument during which I totally lost my cool in a way I never have before. I said a couple of things I regret and, if I were in his position, I’d take my hero off the pedestal on which I’d placed him. And the day ended with me telling Wyatt, though he thought he’d achieved a personal goal, he hadn’t. It was kinda like telling him all his hard work was for nothing. I didn’t sug... more »

When families dissolve, grandparents often squeezed out Wallie Goolsby took photographs of the round bruises — more than 12 perfectly shaped marks on her grandchild’s right leg alone — but they weren’t enough to have the young child removed from home.

I’m proud to be a contributor to the Chicago Tribune. This story is part of their Father’s Day 2014 section: ****** I was in the home stretch of a talk about parenting. It’s a talk I’ve given many times. This time I was in front of a group of parents in a Buffalo Grove middle school gym. I invited them to join in the conversation. The first few questions focused on specific problems: A daughter who stopped communicating. Read the Rest...

My father as a Green Beret in VietnamMy father is, hands down, the toughest, hardest working man I have ever met. A lot of people say this about their fathers, and I don’t doubt them, but how many can say they watched their father calmly hobble into the house to take a shower and then drive to the ER after accidentally sticking an ax blade into his shin? What truly amazed me about that memory, though, was waking to the sound of the crunching gravel from our driveway as my father left for work the following morning. At the time he was the company president, and everyone would’ve cert... more »

Hombres y mujeres biológicamente están igual de predispuestos para la crianza de los hijos, exceptuando por supuesto la lactancia materna.

[image: image father's day] By Katie Davis Father's Day in post-divorce years can be tough, particularly if the divorce happened fairly recently. While divorced dads may worry about what this day will hold after divorce, how they can best celebrate with their kids or whether an ex might try to upset plans, it's important for these men to focus not so much on their losses but rather on what the future of fatherhood with their children may hold. In other words, the focus is on fatherhood. In that sense, Father's Day 2014 can be a great opportunity for divorced dads to re-think ho... more »

Ah Father’s Day. A day that should be fun, easy, light and enjoyable, with kids showering Dad with love and tokens of their affection. I see it on Facebook and on TV, so it must be true, right?

While we define ourselves differently than we did 50 years ago, dads of all sorts are finding themselves in this position across the country, and beyond, of redefining who we are with a simple but profound question:

When I talk about the #PowerofDad, I'm talking about the impact dads truly have on kids. Despite grounding me and harping on me at every turn for my entire life, my dad is and will continue to be one of my best friends. My mentor. My guide through uncertainty. He's the first one I want to call with good news and he's the one whose advice I seek when things go awry. The post The #PowerofDad is a Lasting Legacy appeared first on The Daddy Files.
