* 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.

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, there are places out there that specialize in helping children with these types of issues. They are now often referred to as behavior modification schools. 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 ...

Here's a post I made on safety B)

‘Safety First’: Nowadays it seems that is more of a phrase we say, than something we practice and teach. It should be more of a creed than a mere slogan. Even more so when it comes to the question of the safety of your children. How often do you come across such benign precepts in the course of your daily activities? But more often than not, most parents tend to overlook them without even pausing to spare a second thought. It takes an untoward incident to shatter this sort of passivity anchored in a parent’s mindset.

Ask Yourself
Safety measures are not for reading or preaching, but rather for practicing in your daily life. For example, w...

I've written another piece on child custody agreements and how single fathers can deal with the situation.

A child custody agreement is often one of the most difficult parts of a divorce or when an unmarried couple separates. As adults, you and your former partner know that your decision to part ways is the healthiest and wisest choice you can make. If it was just the two of you, it would be a relatively easy split with a few months of heartbreak and then moving onward. Add a child and the split becomes anything but easy and copacetic. Creating a fair and sensible child custody agreement can seem like an impossible task, particularly when you and your soon-to-be ex have different ideas of how to split your time with your child.

If you are a father going through a cus...

Hey all, here's a post I worked on that I figured would be able to spark some discussion.

Life after a divorce can be tough on parents and their children, both emotionally and financially. Depending on the child custody and support agreements the former spouses reached in the divorce, disagreements about child custody could arise after a court order is in place. 

While parents may believe that fighting for custody rights stems from their love for their children, those very disagreements can end up causing harm.

If you are going through a divorce and anticipate challenges in determining which parent has primary custody and what visitation arrangements may be, keep your chil...

Hello to all my fellow SAHD. Im new here all so pardon me if i make mistakes where to post. I joined this forum to seek support and advice for being a stay at home dad. Im just going to lay it all out and wait to hear what all of you have to say.
a little about me.. I'm 29 years old, I just quit my job of armed security about a month ago. I have been a SAHD before but I had ran into issues I will be sharing later before. So I got a job to help. After working a good long while I never had weekends off, I worked 12 hr shifts every night for 48 hrs a week. It was driving me crazy not seeing my 8yr old daughter and my 3 yr old son.  My gf worked the days I worked the night so time together was scarce . Shortly after a while she stated that she wanted me to quit since my safety was in jeop...

Marriage isn’t easy, no matter how well you two get along and how long you’ve been together. When the going gets rough, some people simply get going, while others stay the course and work through their issues. While divorce isn’t unavoidable in every situation, most couples should put in a little more elbow grease when it comes to staying together.

Get a Move On

If you think that your relationship is in a rut, a regular Friday date night may not be enough to shake things up. If you’re able to, move to a different house, a different town, a different state, even a different country. Some people confuse feeling uninspired geographically with being unhappy in their marriage. When you see someone you love in a different context, you could feel that love renewed, ju...
