Homeschooling Dads

Homeschooling Dads

Extending the Role
Most folks assume homeschooling dads go off to work each day while moms stay home to teach the kids. For many families, that's certainly the case. However, there's a new breed of homeschooling dads: those not satisfied being merely an observer. They don't want to come home from work and ask what Johnny learned today -- they want to be a part of that learning experience and learn it with him. These fathers are fostering a love of learning in their kids, and rediscovering it for themselves.

Sleep and Exercise Affect New Moms Differently Than New Dads

Sleep and Exercise Affect New Moms Differently Than New Dads

Sleep and exercise are probably two of the top things new moms and new dads wish they had time for. Of course, their focus is on their beautiful new baby, but that baby probably has them running on empty and getting very little sleep and time for themselves. Although both mom and dad may be craving sleep and time to exercise, a new research study shows that sleep and exercise affect new moms differently than new dads.

Why Don't Dads Take Paternity Leave? (And Why More Men Should!)

Current data on paternity leave shows that despite the enactment of federal and state laws allowing men to take unpaid parental leave, few actually do.

It's not a sign that dads care more about their jobs than their kids. For the 50 percent of workers covered under these laws, most simply can't afford to take that amount of unpaid time off from work. The other 50 percent of employees aren't even covered under these laws, and therefore have no rights to paternal leave.

St. Patrick's Day Overload: How Much Is Too Much?

St. Patrick's Day Shamrocks

When you were a kid, St. Patrick's Day likely felt like nothing more than a small blip on the radar — a bit of fun drawing shamrocks and wearing green in between making President Lincoln hats and dying Easter eggs.
