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.

Men who are facing a divorce or separation often experience changes that affect who they get their home and auto insurance from. Embarking on a new single lifestyle is a perfect time to consider changing the companies where you get your insurance. If you decide that now is the time for a switch, here are some things to consider.
The first thing you have to know before switching insurance companies are the rules for doing so in your state. Some states require that you quit one company simultaneously with starting with another, meaning you have to have signed up for new insurance before you can leave your old carrier. This ensures that there is no gap in your coverage, a good idea even if your state does not require it by law. Some companies do off...

Married and singles parents understand that it is difficult to look after children and perform various tasks around a home. There may seem like there is always one more thing to do. Fortunately, there are helps that can lighten the load for parents and may be encouraging.
Containers and Limits
Many children love to take their toys and dump them all out on the floor. While that may be understandable, it can be frustrating to a parent who needs to go from one room or another. Sharp toys can hurt feet and may break. Therefore, consider investing in plastic containers that will hold toys. A plastic container for dolls and one for cars are good examples. Next, make a limit as to the amount of bins that can be out at the same time, such as two. The two-container lim...

Death is something that, unfortunately, everyone has to experience. And while burial is still a common choice for the last resting place, more and more people are choosing cremation. This can be due to a wide array of reasons, but mostly consumers are weighing the positives of cremation over the negatives of burial. In fact, cremation has many benefits that you just cannot obtain with traditional burial methods.
Being cremated allows family members to keep a bit of your ashes in a keepsake bracelet or keychain so they can have a piece of you with them at all times. While this may seem a little morbid to some, most people find comfort knowing their loved ones are close. This can be especially important if you ...

Most people can count on one hand the number of men they know who love to shave. Yet, in Western societies there are many circumstances that require a man, albeit begrudgingly, to shave. So the goal is to try to find a shaving technique or device that leaves a guy with a clean shave while at the same time being at least somewhat enjoyable. For many men, the solution has been to switch to a single blade razor.
Over the past few years, razor companies have boasted about their ability to add multiple blades to a single razor. They’re probably up to something like 15 blades now. Doesn’t that mean that the more blades, the better? Well, ask yourself this, over the years has your shaving experience improved or has it...

We all scream for it and customers line up for it in shops and at events across the country. But because ice cream sales have a low profit margin, costs must be kept low. This is important for the commercial retailer and is especially important for the organization conducting a fundraiser. If expenses can be kept down, it is more for the charity or group providing the fundraiser.
One area where costs must be kept in check is serving materials such as bowls, spoons and cones. Few things can affect the bottom line of sales like ice cream shop supplies. Overpaying for serving materials will make an otherwise profitable enterprise into a loss.
But price isn’t the only factor to consider when shopping for supplies. ...

My son, William, does not like to listen. I know we all say this, but it appears that he does stuff just to upset us. He is 6 years old and we will sit there and tell him not to do us, and it is like he does not hear us. He says that he tries to listen to us, but we end up yelling at him more then anything else for stuff that he choses not to do, or chooses to do when we tell him not to. It appears that he is shutting down when we yell at him now, which is definitely not what we want to do. I have been gone for 5 weeks now and after a discussion with my wife, we are trying to not yell at him as much, just for the big stuff, hoping it would help, but it does not appear to. I will return home in three weeks and am trying to take a different take with I'm and not yell, but it is going t...

Does your child have serious behavioral issues? Does he or she have bad manners? Do they constantly act out by doing inappropriate things? If you have a child who is uncontrollable, you might have started to lose hope for them having any sort of normal life, and becoming a productive member of society.

However, most people still call them boarding schools. Children live at the schools full-time, receiving instruction from professionals who can help them to change their behavior, and change their lives in the process. Here is how to locate a good boarding ...
