A Couple of New Books for Dads

Tue, 27 May 2014 20:59:51 +00002014-05-27T20:59:51Z

(image) As my readers know, I spend a lot of time reading books about parenting and about the fatherhood experience. I know better than most that there are many good books out there on this topic, but there are also a lot that are just a waste of money. Part of my role here at About.com is to steer you toward the best choices for your library or your personal reading list.

Developing Common Interests With Your Son

Wed, 14 May 2014 15:11:57 +00002014-05-14T15:11:57Z

(image) I did a radio interview last week where the interviewer, Larry Agresto, asked me about my relationship with my dad and how it influenced my parenting and fathering approaches.  It was a great question, and it caused me to reflect on my relationship with my amazing father.  We were quite different - he was a man's man that liked playing sports, shooting guns and the like, while I was a gangly, uncoordinated kid who was more at home in books.  But to his great credit, he found things of common interest (fixing cars and camping) that allowed us to spend quality time together, as different as we seemed on the surface.

Mon, 12 May 2014 00:29:56 +00002014-05-12T00:29:56Z

(image) Keeping kids busy over the summer is a good idea, and a summer job will help your teen learn responsibility, make good use of their time and earn a little money for the coming year for things like dates, proms, clothes, college savings and other expenses.  But finding the summer job can be a little tricky and requires that you start early.  So now is the time to get going on that summer job.

How Much is Too Much?

Wed, 07 May 2014 13:26:11 +00002014-05-07T13:26:11Z

(image) This is a critical question for parents to answer:  "When have we given our kids too much?"

The era in which we live is one that is often characterized by overindulgence; there are sure a lot of folks I see and hear who are wondering what is in any given choice for them.  They want instant gratification and they want it NOW.  And I also tend to see a lot of kids who are, using my parents' vernacular, simply "spoiled."

Get Ready for Summer Reading

Mon, 05 May 2014 13:25:52 +00002014-05-05T13:25:52Z

(image) With summer vacation just a few weeks away for many of us, it is time to start thinking about planning for all of that down time with the kids.  Vacations are great, and video games can be fun, but as parents we have to take the initiative to keep learning alive over the summer.

What Dads Need to Know About Social Media Apps

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 12:37:18 +00002014-04-29T12:37:18Z

(image) Social media is a big and confusing world for most of us.  Even though I use social media frequently to share ideas, communicate with other dads and keep track of family and friends, I am hardly an expert.  That is partly because the world of social media is changing so rapidly; there are new outlets and tools regularly, and literally hundreds of apps for smartphones and computer that help manage our social media presence and consumption.

Top 10 Podcasts for Fathers

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 16:39:05 +00002014-04-21T16:39:05Z

(image) In the last couple of years, I have discovered the value of listening to podcasts while on the treadmill, on a walk or on a long drive.  I used to listen to music, but I have found that learning while exercising is a good strategy and a great way to "multitask."  And when time is so limited, dads need to find ways to do more without sacrificing the important things!
