"If you asked your kids what #culture is, would they know?" #MrDad #cultural #education #parenting http://buff.ly/1Bqsc38
If you asked your kids what culture is, would they know? Today’s society seems to have little focus when it comes to cultural education; however, understanding culture of all types is necessary for a child’s social and academic development.

Self-care is so important for parents and those work with kids who have autism. I volunteered for 2 years in various capacities with kids and parents with autism.

Vicki Harrision believes that #flexiblework is a form of currency. She shares her story of searching for #flexible #work and why she decided to bring up her desire for flexible work early in the #interview process. #jobnegotiations #flex #career #family http://buff.ly/1DjEb1t
What is flexibility worth? Does it have value in job negotiations? The answer is yes.

The following list was compiled by my wife, me, and a few other guilty parties whose names will be protected until my death. They know who they are, and they don't feel guilty, either....

To you, what does it mean to be a man? “Traditional ideas of #masculinity,” Kimmel says, “can get in our way of being the kind of #fathers we want to be.” #parenting #fatherhood http://buff.ly/1zCV4k2

I had no idea that there was such a thing as a Dad's summit (but I have volunteered at many Father's Day events). In the last several decades the ideas of manhood have changed significantly- as shown by your book, and in my personal experience the amount of men that come to my Couples Success Courses.

Nobody knows dads like Mr. Dad
Introduction
Being a dad comes first. Always. But for the last 15 years or so, I've devoted my career to giving men (and those who love them) the tools, support, resources, and knowledge they need to be the dads they want to be--and their family needs them to be.

I'm the author of eight bestselling books on fatherhood, covering everything from pregnancy and infancy to toddlers, school-age kids, and even teens. Titles include The Expectant Father, The New Father: A Dad's Guide to the First Year, and The Military Father: A Hands-on Guide for Deployed Dads. I write two nationally syndicated newspaper columns, "Ask Mr. Dad" and "Parents@Play," and host two parenting radio shows. "Positive Parenting" airs on a dozen stations in the US, and "Positive Parenting for Military Families" airs on the American Forces Network where it reaches more than 2 million American servicemembers and their families on 500+ stations in 177 countries. Oh, and I guess I shouldn't forget about my blog and website, mrdad.com

Whew. Besides all that, I do a lot of work on men's health issues and edit a popular blog, Talking About Men's Health.
