Hello and welcome to a strange new world. You have traveled far through the desert, only to be met time and again by one empty oasis after another. You are lost and alone, wandering, wondering if someone, anyone, knows how you feel. And just when you think you can't go on, and no one could possibly understand your struggle, a hand reaches out to you, lifts you to your feet, and carries you to the promised land. He feeds you knowledge, shelters you from the self-righteous (and the ridiculous), and provides you with the tools you need to survive in this brave new world. You are a stranger in a strange land, but you are not alone. Let him be your guide. Follow closely as you travel together on this adventure of a lifetime. For now, you are a foreigner to "Fatherhood" but soon YOU will be the master of this realm.

This week's installment: Stay at Home Dads

Definition and Background Information:  

Articles and Statistics: 
Today I'd like to take a moment to recognize the brave men who call themselves SAHD, or if you prefer, Stay At Home Dads. This small but growing group of brave souls (worldwide) wages a war every day to care for their kids amidst the extreme prejudice of a society that cannot fathom their resolve to be the primary caregiver to their kids in a world that still sees fathers as the primary breadwinner. Get over it already. Dads are proving that anything moms can do we can do equally as well, with a few minor differences in methodology. So to all the guys who cook, clean, care for their kids, and live to blog about it, this is for you.

This song was written by John Lennon as an F@#% Y@# to his critics when they ridiculed him for choosing to drop out of the limelight to raise his son, Sean. That was over thirty years ago. I guess some things change, and some thing remain the same, but a good F@#% Y@# song never dies.

All our best to all the Stay at Home Dads and their families. You are all pioneers in a brand new world, and we salute you for it.
