  1. Has anyone else read this book by Robert Glover? https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B004C438CW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_uy.KBbE1P604N I'm working through it right now and I'm struggling with a few things. This weekend as an exercise I'm supposed to be doing only the things I want to be doing (not including taking care of children or actual responsibilities) and not the things I do strictly for other people. My wife is fully on board, but the guilt I'm still struggling with is crazy, and it's only been 4 hours into Saturday. Has anyone else worked through this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. DHO is proud and humbled to announce that we are restarting the Needy Dad Foundation! It is through the support of our Patreon Supporters, the Amazon Affiliate Campaign, and other revenue sources that we can offer this service! We are renaming it, but the goal is the same: This website is made up of am amazing cadre of dads, and we are here to support each other. Sometimes a dad can use a little extra boost, and no one knows this better than other dads. So if you know of a dad that could use a little boost this holiday season, or YOU are a dad that could use that boost, please let us know with the link below. The information will not be shared with anyone, it will all be deleted on 1 Jan 2019, and if you nominate another dad, they will not know who nominated them. If you are nominated, you do not have to accept, we will simply choose another dad. If you have nay questions, let me @thedakar know. CLICK HERE for the application and nomination website.
  3. I have been with my fiancé for 4 years and I have a 5 year old daughter (from previous marriage). My daughter has known my fiancé since she was a baby and really has only memories with me and her not me and her mom. She's never liked when I would kiss her mom even as a very small baby and she has always wanted my attention over everyone else which was easy. As a toddler she would change so fast whenever I'd go get her from her grandma or the sitter and act like it was so bad but I knew she was smiling and playing just moments before. My fiancé and I have had some really bad times when she pulls her stunts at our place. She breaks stuff and starts yelling I can't understand her and to boot, she is hateful and mean and tells my fianc that she wishes she would die! Her sitter says that she doesn't understand why she would be doing that because she always talks about both of us. My fiancé cries all the time because my daughter is so great with her when they are alone and turns her switch when I enter the picture. She acts nice when she's alone with me too and I try to stick with that as long as I can or as long as she will let me. She doesn't start doing crazy stuff unless she is with us both or wants attention I guess. It's driving us crazy and I wonder if this relationship is worth my daughter's happiness. My fiancé is getting put in overload and can't seem to handle much more of my daughter going tantrum so I usually take my daughter and leave the house but fiancé doesn't like that either, nothing makes her happy do what does she expect me to do? I don't know what she expects me to do but if I have to choose then I choose my kid and maybe start looking at relationships later when my daughter is older. She obviously needs me and doesn't like my fiancé and never had. It's not my daughters fault that I chose to be in a relationship and she shouldnt have to be around someone she doesn't like or a person that is always frustrated with my daughter. How do I get my fianc to understand that we will probably not work out unless my daughter can get onboard too? Aren't our kids the top priority? I don't want to see my fiancé hurting all the time because I love her and I don't want to be with anyone else but if my daughter doesn't make her happy then why the hell would she want to stay with me anyway?

  5. What is it that makes a man, a good dad? Is it the things he buys for his kids? Is it his patience and understanding with his children? Is it the places he takes his kids, and the lessons he bestows upon them? What if I told you it is all of that and none of that. That doesn't seem right. And yet, every man that has become a father, will at some point, question whether what he is doing is the right thing. Is he doing too much, or not enough? Is he raising his son/daughter to be the best person they can be? After all, many people see their children as representations of who they are/were in the world. When they die, their belongings and personal artifacts will be dumped and destroyed. But their children will live on. We get our idea of how we want to raise our kids from our own upbringing. Mental toughness is a huge factor in how you are shaped today. Can you step back, look at the things that were done in your upbringing, and identify the ones you want to repeat? Can you see the ones you never want your own children to have to endure? Do you want to protect them, or follow along on some 'right of passage' that you never wanted to be a part of during your upbringing. Most dads pick and choose how they are going to raise their kids. We know how our parents raised us. "You don't have to tell us, WE WERE THERE!" Not everything was within the realm of that Brady Bunch. Our parents did what they deemed was necessary, and from that, our own idea of raising a family was impressed upon us. There is no manual, though, on how to be a proper dad. There is no, "this is right and this wrong", clear definition on what to do. We are different people, and have different ideas of what raising our kids entails. Based on our own experiences of our upbringing, we have different priorities on what we consider important. Things that we will make absolutely sure our kids never have happen to them, and things that are not as grievous or important as they are to others. So how do you know if you are a "good dad"? It's simple. It's what your parents did for you. What their parents did for them. And what you are doing now for your kids: effort. That is the basis on which you are judged as to whether you are a good father. It's not the beatings you hand out, or how disciplined you ensure your children are. It doesn't matter how many toys you buy them, or if you just play 10 minutes of freeze tag. It all comes down to the effort you put into being a dad, and being with them. No matter what, even if you are hardly in your kid's life, they are always going to remember that effort that you put in to be with them. Kids are going to remember the good times. They are going to remember the time spent together. "My dad was always working and tired, but I remember the times when we played and laughed together." So are you always telling your kids "no"? Are you always making excuses, and saying you are tired? Another day you tell them. Put in some effort. Put in some work. It will pay dividends in their psychological well-being, and it will give you a peace of mind that you are, in fact, a good dad.
