Gene by Environment – Story of Daddy

I came across this headline in the Telegraph UK, quite an intriguing suggestion, which prompted me to share it with a couple of fathers. Admittedly not the greatest of research articles but… The first one noted that the article itself seems to completely neglect the role of mothers, (rightly so), while the second one said…

The Trust Fall

Today and yesterday were good days but very demanding. Yesterday I had to call in a favor to have someone pick up the kids from school. I hoped to avoid the same predicament today but again I needed the kindness of the same friend. This pattern needs to stop. Our kids are very much pattern…

Bias

I walked into the meeting hall with anticipation. The subject of the meeting as advertised was about men and manhood. Since I am a man and I am raising a young man of my own, anything about the right way to raise a man, or to connect with my man side, that interests me. Even…
