* The Stay-At-Home Dad Handbook

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-

  • Dealing with jealousy and guilt with your spouse
  • Adjusting to a new way of life
  • Cleaning tips
  • Activities to enrich you and your children and pass the time
  • Networking with other stay-at-home dads
  • Tips on working from home while caring for your children
  • Dealing with S.A.H.D. burnout
As you read through the handbook you'll find that many of the tips offered might tend to fall into the common sense territory-of "I already know that."  But included throughout the book are little sidebar stories of dads from all over the country that share their experiences that I found to be very helpful.  Giving one a stronger confidence  knowing so many other dads are having the same experiences you are having every day.  I equate it to being sort of like when you were in junior high school and thought you were the only kid who masturbated, possibly filling you with shame and embarrassment regardless of how satisfying it was.  Then you find out everybody does it and you can dump the emotional baggage and just get on with it.

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.

* Stay at home dads are increasing

  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.


Here is an article about 5 Tips for the Stay At Home Dad

1) Prepare a schedule to use your time and energy more wisely with the family.
2) All the family members should define the basic house rules and agree to prevent conflicts later.
3) All the chores should be done by sharing the workload.
4) Spending meal times together is a blessing. A family which eats together stays together.
5) Be aware of the medical condition of each family member to reduce the stress to manage sudden illness.
6) Work out special methods to deal with the unique characteristics of each child.
7) Child care centers or babysitters can also be considered. He might face stress initially due to the new environment but he’ll have more friends or playmates to share.

It can be challenging to be away from home when a baby or toddler is along. Feelings of being unprepared for an emergency are understandable. Fortunately, there are some tips that can help a father as he is getting things done with his children.


Diaper Power


Young children seem to poop and pee at the most inconvenient time when they are out. A good starting point is to make a diaper bag that has all that necessary items in case of an emergency. When it is time to go out, remember to bring at least four diapers along, a package of wet wipes and a small container of hand sanitizer. These three items can prevent a father from tearing his hair out when a child experiences the call of nature. In addition to this, do not forget to create a diaper kit for e...

Horse ownership as a hobby or a business involves certain expenses that cannot be ignored. Not only do equines require adequate feed, housing and turnout areas with safe fencing, but they also have specific health needs. Veterinarians recommend all horses receive annual vaccinations to prevent tetanus, equine encephalomyelitis and flu in the spring. These basic shots should be given twice within the first six months of the first year, and annually thereafter. In warmer climates where mosquitoes are prevalent, horses should also get a semi-annual vaccination to prevent West Nile and Potomac Horse Fever. Many horse owners also schedule an annual rabies vaccination for their equines that must be given by a licensed veterinarian who will file the necessary report.

Hey guys,

I am new to the site so "Hey!".  I am just looking to reach out for some feedback, hoping that maybe someone has been in a similar situation.  I am the father of 2 girls aged 2 and 4.  My wife is making some seriously loud noises about going for no.3 not to mention anyone that hears that our youngest is 2 now is playing the "time for no.3" card.  Here is my dilemma...

1. When our 4 year old was born, there was no complications during the pregnancy and the brith was as straight forward as it could be.  Of course times were hard when she arrived as they usually are in the first year or so but overall (and compared to no.2 she was a breeze!).
2. Pregnancy no.2 was almost the exact opposite.  When we went for the 8 week scan we found out we were having twin...

Do you need a gift idea for the outdoor enthusiast who has everything? Consider a hunting seat warmer. Whether you treat yourself or someone else, there are benefits to the product that go beyond mere comfort. Not only can enduring excessive cold ruin your or your kids' outdoor enjoyment, extended exposure to cold can lead to muscle and joint stiffness or even hypothermia.


Seat warmers are lightweight and portable, so you can take them anywhere. You can even keep a few in your vehicle for emergency use. Electric seat heaters are also good to use in your vehicle if you don't have built-in car seat heaters, and they're great for:


- fishing, either in a boat or on ice
- outdoor con...

Whether you have a single child or multiple kids, you know that planning a family vacation can cost more than you want to spend and more than your family can afford. When your kids are younger, you can get by with trips close to home because they don't know any better. As your kids age though, they'll likely want to go to amusement parks and on exciting adventures that they can share with their friends. Regardless of how much money you have in your vacation budget, you can still find some ways to spend less on your trip.


Consider Camping


Camping is a suitable alternative for those looking to travel for less. Major amusement parks like Disney World are close to campgrounds that charge $100 or less per night, though you will need to bring your own camp...

Most parents are willing to go to any length to keep their babies safe, healthy and happy. For a lot of those same parents, this will include only giving your baby organic baby products to use or eat from reputable companies such as kippins.co. There is a never-ending amount of blogs and articles to read online about why you should give your baby organic food and products. However, not many parents understand exactly why they should only offer organic. Below are some top reasons and information about why organic products are best for your little ones.


Organic Versus Non-Organic


The decision whether a parent wants to spend the extra time and money giving their baby all organic foods and p...

The costs of attending college are always on the rise. Saving money is a big deal for anyone working towards a degree.

Hey all!

I’m brand new to the board, so my apologies if this topic has been discussed. I’m a first time dad, my little guy is 17 months old and I’m starting to get concerned about his talking, or lack thereof.

He does a lot of the milestone things, points, responds to his name, follows minor directions. He’s spoken previously, saying “mama” and “dada” but that was about 3 months ago and now he just babbles.

I ask him to say “dada” and he smiles at me like he knows what I want him to say, but he doesn’t say it.

Is there cause for concern yet, or could this be because my wife is home with him all day and he doesn’t necessarily need to talk because she makes sure he has what he wants?

Any help and advice would be appreciated.
