"In order to really engage our students and help them perform at their best we have to move beyond what’s happening in the head." #movement #learning http://buff.ly/1bZPiUZ
Students can better understand math and physics problems by acting them out. This type of embodied learning can help open up the mind to abstract concepts.

Isn't this the truth?! Why You Should Play It Cool When a #Child Falls and Looks at You http://buff.ly/1OWNUOU
It’s hard not to wince when you see someone fall, hit their head, or run into someone. When a child does it, they’ll usually look to an adult to see how they should react. For this reason, it’s best to keep it cool.

This is so true. Most kids aren't hurt very badly and if you make a big fuss about it they will continue to cry. But if you don't make a big deal about it the child will not cry and carry on playing.

Yes, Mother's Day cards should praise mom. But at the expense of #dad? Sigh. #MrDad

If you're an older parent, are you concerned about this? #parenting #grandparents http://buff.ly/1J7IH5a
As more women and men have children in their late 30s and beyond, more kids may grow up without active grandparents in their lives.

Getting ready to teach your child how to ride a #bike? Useful advice in our latest blog post. #MrDad http://buff.ly/1A8rCmp
A guest post by Leona S. Green Riding a bicycle is one of the biggest milestones that a kid can ever achieve. It is like a rite of passage that shows the young ones the joys, risks, and thrills, of being independent. If you were a very active kid, you can still probably remember the …

Did you know? April is #FootHealth Awareness Month? Play it Safe...and read more here: http://buff.ly/1HLXZOb
Although this post is sponsored, all opinions 100% my own. In the U. S., more than 38 million children play some kind of organized sport each year. That’s great except for one thing: kids’ bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments are still growing, which makes them more susceptible to injury. Actually it goes beyond “susceptible”: A …

Latest #AskMrDad...Babies Can Sometimes Bring out the Worst in Us...Don't feel guilty...learn how to control it. http://buff.ly/1Qn8Th7
Dear Mr. Dad: I’m a new dad and I sometimes get incredibly angry when my son cries. Of course I haven’t acted on my anger, but I’m feeling really guilty that I get so mad in the first place. I’ve always been a pretty patient guy, but I don’t think I’ve ever had such intense …

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.
