Although The Stay-at-Home Dad HANDBOOK was originally published in 2004 its relevance may have hit new heights in our current economic landscape. Peter Baylies, with Jessica Toonkel have put together a comprehensive overview on what to expect if you decide or are forced by lay-offs to become your children's primary caregiver. The book covers the gambit of situations a S.A.H.D. will likely face as he takes on the challenges of his new job.
A few highlights-
The book can be found at most bookstores, and of course Amazon.com has it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005JWUFZY Also, check out Peter Baylies' Official At-home dad website by clicking here.

The term ''stay at home dads'' is used to describe a father who is the main caregiver of the children and is the homemaker of the household. As families have evolved, the practice of being a stay at home dad has
become more common.
Stay at home dads have been seen in increasing numbers in Western culture, especially in Canada, the UK and the United States since the late 20th century. In developed East Asian nations such as Japan and South Korea, this practice is less common.
Many middle-aged men have become essentially unemployable due to heart attacks or some other physical aliment, thereby causing a role reversal for economic reasons. At the same time, women are progressing into higher paying jobs. There are now financial ramifications in deciding whether the mother or father should become the stay-at-home parent. In cases where the woman is the higher-paid parent, it makes more economic sense for her to continue to work while the man takes on the caregiver role. At times the mother's job offers health benefits for the family whereas the father's does not.
Stay at home dads has, at the same time, some disadvantages and advantages. Depending on the country or region, a stay at home dad might find more or less social support for his decision. In regions where traditional roles prevail, a stay at home dad might be shunned by a stay at home mom's peer group. In order to find support for their choice, these men have created and joined many support networks.
But there are many advantages too. There have been many studies done which suggest the importance of the paternal role in a child's life and benefits of the stay at home dad, the mothers will not be so stressed in search for a nanny or a daycare and for the fathers, they will have a better relationship with their children.

So over the course of the last 6 months, it seems that I keep apologizing to you guys for being gone, then coming back. So this will be no different. life has gotten really hectic lately, as I informed everyone it would. The train keeps on going with no letting up. First, we conducted the change of command, so I am no longer in charge of the troop (80 soldiers) that I was in charge of. Then three days later (today), Greta Cole Eisenberger came into the world weighing 9 pounds, 1 ounce and 21 inches long. next up is Quinn's scheduled appendectomy, followed by three days of packing and moving to GA. Lots of stuff going on. But I am back. I am going to try and stay on here the best that I can. It will be hard, but I will try.

The boys and I just got back from our Battle of Chickamauga Civil War trip. Boy did we have fun and actually learnt quit a bit about this battle that lasted several days.The boys all seemed to love it as well and I believe they all learn't some history about the battle on our 8 mile hike.
Learning aside. This trip was rainy, muddy and rainy and muddy. It rained the entire time we were there and our camp was a muddy mess. The boys didn't gripe too much about it and took it all in stride. Good food, good friends and Great Scouts!If you guys have boys, I highly suggest finding your local Boy Scout troop and get your boys signed up. I am joining as well by becoming an adult leader.
Here are some pics.1st pic. - Me and my boys on one of the many cannons found th...

I could prolong this to the long version but I'll be brief.
I've been absent the last week and a half as we received a call on March 29 from the local hospital back in our home state that my wife's dad was admitted with a respiratory attack. We were the only ones they got in touch with in his contact list. Unfortunately, we're 2000+ miles away and they needed someone there immediately. So I knew it was bad. I got in touch with my brother in law and he rushed there to be with dad. He called me and said it's not good. As the day went on, they had to revive him once and he was so bad that they said if he left the hospital, he wasn't walking out. Well, around 6 pm over the phone with my wife's sister, had to make the decision to resuscitate him or DNR. Knowing what we did, both sis...

I've been with my partner Claire for 2 years, she's good as gold but her daughter 'K' (almost 15) is lazy and spiteful. It's almost time for her to do her exams but she can't be bothered to revise or do a catch up day at school tomorrow whilst they're on a 2 week Easter break.
If I say too much my partner says I'm too strict and that I should just let K fk her life up.
I think if K can't be bothered to do any revision etc why should I have to pay halves with Claire for her to go to her school Prom..fair or am I a little Hitler? My Dad was real strict so maybe I just dunno where to draw the line; I never had kids of my own.
What do you think?

The Eisenberger amid is having lots of big changes coming in the following months. 1st, we will be having our third child in a month and change, we are all looking forward to it. Of course William and I wish it were a boy. But we will be happy no matter what. 2nd we are moving to Georgia in mid June. I have been selected to teach ROTC at a school named Georgia Military Academy in Milledgeville, GA. We can not wait and the job should be a little more relaxing.

There are so many health products that are out there taking people's money; however, there are very few that work! As a fitness buff, I have to constantly research the latest products in order to find the best products. One of the best that I have found is fish oil supplements from OVitaminPro.
Even with the other fish oil products out there, you have to make sure that you purchase a product that is authentic. When it comes to the reputation of OVitaminPro, you do not have to worry about dealing with products that have not been properly vetted. You can bet that the benefits that are on the side of the bottle are the benefits that you will actually receive!
I was also highly impressed by the plethora of ...

While browsing the internet I came across a site where you can buy Diapers and baby supplies and have then delivered to your home. This seems like a really nice service for busy moms and dads.
Has anyone tried this site and if so how did it work out? If you can do a review that would be great. It would seem to me that having diapers and baby supplies delivered to your home would be really convenient.
