What the Ferguson Verdict Should Have Taught You About Critical Thinking

(19) Comments | Posted November 25, 2014 | 5:52 PM

Back in the not so distant past, I remember watching the O.J. Simpson murder trial with some of my college friends and our discussions became heated. No, we didn't come to blows and we didn't stoop to name calling, but we did have diametrically opposed opinions when it came to...

Dads Don't Really Care... or Do They?

(0) Comments | Posted November 21, 2014 | 12:40 PM

Parents, do you know what we all have in common? We experience insecurity. All of us deal with a sense of not feeling good enough at some point, and it's usually due to comparing ourselves to other moms and dads.

(20) Comments | Posted October 28, 2014 | 4:40 PM

Os pais de hoje são palhaços sem-noção, incompetentes, desprovidos de emoções e não sabem a diferença entre um cotovelo e uma bunda quando se trata de cuidar de crianças, certo? Errado. Completamente errado.

Les papas d'aujourd'hui sont des bouffons inutiles, incompétents, dépourvus d'émotions qui n'y connaissent rien aux enfants, n'est-ce pas? Faux.

21 foto che mostrano i papà di oggi

(1) Comments | Posted September 12, 2014 | 9:03 AM

I papà moderni non sanno nulla, sono incompetenti, buffoni anaffettivi che capiscono fischi per fiaschi quando si tratta di bambini, giusto? Sbagliato. Totalmente sbagliato. La stragrande maggioranza di noi (sì, ho detto la stragrande maggioranza) sono geniali, amorevoli, e uomini fantastici che mettono la famiglia al primo posto....

Vater und Kind: Diese 21 Fotos zeigen, wie Papas heute wirklich sind

(2) Comments | Posted September 12, 2014 | 5:27 AM

Die Väter von heute sind ahnungslose, emotionslose Blödmänner, die beim Thema Kindererziehung nicht wissen, wo ihnen der Kopf steht, richtig? Falsch. Völlig falsch.

Die große Mehrheit der Väter heute (ja, ich sagte, die große Mehrheit) ist geschickt und liebevoll. Es sind wundervolle Männern, die ihre Familien stets an erste...

이 글은 허핑턴포스트 US의 블로거이자 Daddy Doin' Work 블로그 운영자인 도인 리차드스의 글을 번역한 것입니다.

아빠들은 감정이 메마르고 우둔하고 무덤덤하다고? 그렇게 생각했다면 큰 오해다!

실상 요즘 아빠들은 주체하지 못할 만큼 자녀를 사랑하며 또 그것을 섬세하게 표현할 줄 안다. 인스타그램 계정...

First off, let me say that you'll be hard-pressed to find a bigger mama's boy than yours truly. My mother spent many years as a stay-at-home mom while my dad worked long hours as a professor at a local university -- and my identical twin, older brother and I terrorized...
