5 Times You Just Need Dad

I feel like Dad’s just don’t get recognized enough. They just don’t get the love they deserve. We know all about how awesome moms are. People are always talking about how moms rock at multi-tasking. How moms cook those mean meals that are healthy, delicious, and pleasurable to everyone. How moms can transition their pouty littles into laughing babes in minutes (sometimes seconds) because we have a record of all the things that have ever made them smile….

How You Lose Authority When You Spank

Push back against anyone who is anti-spanking is inevitable considering a majority of parents in America still spank their children. “In 2014, according to a nationally representative survey, 76 percent of men, and 65 percent of women, 18 to 65 years old, agreed that a child sometimes needs a “good hard spanking.” This proportion has declined modestly since 1986 among women, while approval among males, after declining into the early 1990’s, has remained steady.”(1) Let me preface this…

The issues with this type of societal influence are endless and catastrophic. “A new study has reported that 69 percent of divorces are brought about by women“.1 Of course, divorce is bad for women too. However, since women are initiating the majority…

Happy Man Happy Home

Some of you might be saying, “I thought this was a parenting blog, this sounds more like relationship advice”. A strong relationship between husband and wife equals a happy, healthy, and functional home. That is what I am striving for. I’m just going one step further into a healthy relationship than was defined in Things Parents Should do in Front of Their Kids.

Things Parents Should do in Front of Their Kids

Parents are the foundation of the family. Their bond created the family. The way the parents interact teaches the child how to act in their own relationships. Not just romantic relationships when the child is older, but all of them, including the one they have with you. Your child learns by absorbing the interactions of the relationships surrounding them. Most people think, `if I show them love and kindness then they will learn how to be loving and…
