I had the opportunity this past weekend to take my family - me, wife, 4yo daughter, and 18mo son - to a family Bar-B-Q. My cousins were celebrating their daughter's first birthday. They have a huge in-ground pool and, since I've been trying to teach…Continue

The Talk

While giving my 2yo son a bath yesterday, he realized (or at least this was the first time I noticed him doing it) that he could massage his penis with the wash rag to give himself an erection. He looked amazed. After letting it subside a bit, he…Continue

I want to know how other fathers handle nudity around their sons? My son is young (3), so it's not a big deal so far. Obviously, I am modeling the potty and there is an occasional time he joins my shower. My wxperience growing up was extremely…Continue

Happy Fathers' Day, Gentlemen!

Welcome to the group, Sean. Yes, traffic does come in waves... feast or famine and all that. But we're glad to have you aboard and I look forward to getting to know you.

Fostering to adopt! That some exciting stuff. My wife and I were foster parents for some 7 years or so. Although we never adopted any of the children - they were all teenagers with ties to their bio families - we remained in contact with several of them for years after they left our home.

Feel free to chime in anywhere and start a few discussions if you want.

Seems like it has been a while since someone has posted on here.  Just wanted to say 'Hi' and check out this group.  I've been a dad to a little guy now for 9 months.  We are fostering him with the hopes to adopt him.  It has been great to watch him grow and can't wait to see what adventures are in store for us when he is older!

That's a really useful list. Thanks for sharing.

I remember the volcano project. Good times.

Comment by Native Son on January 4, 2014 at 11:38am

Middle School construction project with the boy.  Time to build the paper mache volcano!

So while camping this last weekend I was convincing Max, the three year old who is currently potty training, to pee on a tree.
"Pee on this tree Max, it has your name on it"
To which he replies, "Tree's don't have names."
The next time; "Why don't you pee on this tree, It has you name all over it"
"Trees don't have names on them, just leaves"
Then: "Max, why don't you pee over here on this tree?"
He walks up to a different tree and starts to pee, "No, this tree. It has my name!"

Johnny, I totally agree! The world would be a much better place if real men were stepping up and helping to grow more real men.

Comment by Joe W on August 28, 2013 at 11:46am

Awesome testimony, Art! Join any conversation you want. As a former Mentor and a former Foster Father, I know that is no reason to limit the father/son relationship to blood.

Post anywhere you want in this group. I look forward to your comments and feedback!

Comment by Art on August 28, 2013 at 10:13am
We were not blessed with a son(s). But I thank God I've had the privilege to mentor and be a surrogate Dad - most rewarding. There is one such young man in our life. He's 18 now and I never take for granted opening his text message that begins, 'hey Dad' . . ....
