Fatherhood: Journey of fear, destination ... love

No one ever thinks they are going to be “that guy” until they end up being that guy. For me, I never thought I’d be that dad who takes countless pictures of his child. But just weeks in, I’ve got hundreds—along with endless nicknames for my firstborn.

Dads 101

New moms-to-be are likely to chat with friends who have experienced childbirth about the many challenges of raising a baby. But what about dads? Who can they go to with their questions? Baby talk probably isn’t something they’d want to bring up during a round of golf or over commercials while watching sports with the guys. Enter Father’s Bootcamp...

Diary of a Grocery Geek

If you’ve paid attention at the store or at the gas pump lately, you know that costs have been going up. Milk and gasoline have both hit more than $4 in some places, and the price of wheat, rice and other grain has also taken a jump.

Estimates today place the number of stay-at-home dads in the United States at nearly two million, a number that has quadrupled since 1986 and is now the fastest-growing family type.

Doing the math: Calculating the cost of child care

The average family in Pennsylvania spends $5,000 to $12,000 annually to put one child in full-time daycare, according to the National Association of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies. With the rising cost of gas, food and everything else that families need to keep going, factor in the cost of child care and many families are finding themselves strapped...

Who's your daddy?

The overreactor in all of us

Ok, so you think you’re a perfectly reasonable and logical person. But sometimes, when your mate says or does something that makes you feel criticized, ignored or disrespected, you shout out your defense and soon find yourself in a full-blown war of words. You know the situation is out of control, but you don’t know what else to say to get your (totally reasonable!) point across. A friend...
