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

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

Happy Fathers' Day

Just wanted to stop in and say Happy Fathers' Day to all the dads out there, those who are fathers by blood and those who are fathers by love. Make sure you are worthy to be honored today.Continue

What do you do?

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

I have a 17-year-old son who is finishing up his junior year in high school.  He doesn't really know what he wants to do after high school.  He's not inclined to go to college, which I've come to terms with because I know he's a unique individual…Continue

I remember the volcano project. Good times.

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.

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!

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' . . ....
Comment by Joe W on April 4, 2013 at 10:44am
Yeah, see, that's not the type of yelling I'm talking about. And I didn't think it was, judging by your first comment.

I'm glad to hear you guys had fun. Funny how hard work feels a lot easier with help, even little help. And the bonding that occurs is beyond value.
Comment by Native Son on April 4, 2013 at 9:10am

Sometimes you have to yell a tad.  Usually and last weekend the phrase was "Watch Out!" when we had to tip the thing over to get at some fasteners at the top of the thing and drop lumber off the top.  Fun was had, along with some sore arms.  (Whole lot of "wrench bending" went on.)

Shoulders!

Guys, I’ve been weight training for almost 4 years now.  In this time I have experimented a lot. I’ve tried different workout plans, exercises, diets, meal plans and training/rest patterns.I’ve sampled everything from Mike Mentzer’s Heavy Duty workouts, to Mike Rashid’s overtraining and found that neither actually works for me. Mentzer’s regime was too slow and lacking in intensity and I actually found myself getting weaker.  As for Rashid’s overtraining ideas, I found myself with a nasty…See More
