These men enjoy theater as much as a ball game, collect recipes as well as tools, are emotionally present, and work hard to better their community. Know any?
Sometimes all it takes is holding a hand to really connect.
The last Christmas? Yes, indeed! The last holidays of the millennium.
I'm not sure what it is about siblings, but somewhere along the way some of us find it difficult to love each other like we love our friends.

Men constantly strive to best each other, to get one up on the next man. And if this compulsion is not softened, it creates hard edges on relationships that last a lifetime.

Sons Will Only Grow Up when Mothers Let Them
There are mothers who want their sons to remain dependent, and these men may marry a woman to replace mom, finding it normal to have a woman who will dominate and mother them. Fathers need to be alert to this cycle and intervene, so their sons will grow up to be better parents and spouses.
Mothers Raise Presidents...But!!
How influential are the maternal grandfathers of great presidents in the lives of their daughters? Mothers raise presidents, but who raised them?
Dads as Models of Self-Discipline
Disciplining and punishing our kids may win a battle, but it is the self-descipline model we give them which will make the real difference in the long run.
Start the New Year with a Hug
Men generally tend to look toward the future. We focus ahead, on resolving issues that won't impact on our lives for years.
Don't Wait Another Day to Enjoy Life with Your Family
I’m not sure how you’ve spent your summer, but this has been a busy one for us. One that included several trips to places as a family without work, e-mail, or the computer. Among those things that we secured are memories, or gifts that the children will have forever.
Rules and Nintendo
If we don't teach our kids to follow the rules, are we not teaching them to choose to break them?
Use Parents to Bust up Bullies!
Many of the recent shootings seem to indicate a preponderance of bullying is going on in America, and apparently, no one is doing anything about it.
Men 2 Fathers
Tell our sons what they need to hear. Be there, not to keep them from falling, but to help them up if they do.
