This strikes a chord +Whit Honea, "When you work from home you are always at work, and there is nothing Netflix can do to stop it. Too often I take my meals at the desk, my goodnight kisses, too, and when I stand for the first time in memory there is nothing left to greet me but a slice of bed with a warm dog on it. Bells toll, tails wag, and so forth and so on."

As a man lucky enough to work from home since my first son was born, I feel guilty that my children get a quantity of my time but not the quality of it.

Love this from Chris McKee, "I wish I had my shit together so I could be a better parent for you, but my guess is that most parents feel the same way about their relationships with their kids. Having you in my life has been the most demanding thing I have ever encountered."

You're testing me constantly, which I know is your job and, oh, how I wish that was something the government would pay you a decent wage for; it would be great to have more money in your 529 account for college.

Already time to start thinking about camp!

Despite the bleak chill outside, you need to start thinking about summer camp now if you are planning to enroll your kids for July and August.

Well done SF Dads Group! Thanks +Dada Mike for your leadership and a huge thank you to Pampers.

#diaperneed #givingtuesday #givingback #charity #holiday giving
“In a perfect world,” I wrote,” you have the Pampers semi truck pull up to our Dad’s Night Out/Diaper Drive event at 6:30 PM. The side gates roll up, as if by magic – confetti and balloons set aloft – and a team of Santa’s elves unload pallet after pallet in a seemingly endless parade(...)

Unexpected advice from Vincent O'Keefe, "with young children, the experience of a parent’s can-do mentality can be invaluable, even if that parent can’t actually do something well. Children are not always ready for full transparency. While we don’t want them to be deceived, we also don’t want them to worry or to learn self-doubt."

Amazing to see the off-the-field highlight reels from +Arizona Cardinals QB and +Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson, "“I go to work as a football player but God put me here on Earth to be a father”

A new Dove Men+Care advertising campaign that challenges the notion that feats of speed, power and agility on the gridiron are what athletes treasure most.

Last week my family received a mysterious box on our doorstep. Hanukah was over, our Amazon Subscribe and Save shipment wasn’t due for another week or two

It's time to stop assuming moms are the primary parent. Wise post from Vincent O'Keefe.

Let’s begin with a classic riddle: A father and his son go on a hunting trip. Suddenly, their car crashes, the father dies, and the son needs surgery. Medics

Yep . . . it's time for sports parents to chill.
Hey, you. Unreasonably Intense Sports Parent. Knock it off, OK? That’d be great. For everyone. Oh, I get it. Trust me. That’s your kid out there. S
