Which portion of chronology would aught devote to the bairns—of a manner wee, or otherwise in nature?

Couldn't agree more!

Good Morning Gentlemen just a quick heads up to anyone who is a member of the AOM book club that a book has been selected for July. The Road by Cormac McCarthy- a father son journey though a post -apocalyptic wasteland full of cannibals, winner of the Pulitzer prize in 2007. A very manly dad book.

Good work, Brad.  Hang in there, J.D.  I'm sure you'll come out just as Brad did.

I've got 3 girls, 1 in high school and 2 already launched successfully. Fathering them has been a crazy journey. Often, I felt like I was clueless, but I kept moving forward, doing the best I could. I'm proud of all 3 of them. Raising them is absolutely my greatest accomplishment.

I don't know how much you will learn from me as our little girl was only born a little under 14 months ago.  My wife says I'm a good daddy, but I sure as heck don't feel like one most of the time.  But regardless, I'm definitely new to fatherhood and am still trying to learn and improve.

This seems like an excellent group to join.  At 33, my wife is pregnant with our first child.  In today's society, being a manly father, let alone a good father, is important.  I hope I can learn from  you guys.

Lol your not alone J.D. I will never understand why 9 month olds need hard soled shoes.

My little 9-month girl has been crawling around for about a month, but now likes to spend much of her time climbing up onto and over anything that interests her, including and especially her Dad.  Following an unfortunate incident last week where she smashed her little elbow right into my crotch, I've had to take to wearing a cup at all times.  I'm not sure how many other Dads do or have had to do this, but regardless, I need to avoid the pain and make sure the equipmemnt works so this kid can have some sibblings.  It's just one of a great many aspects of becoming a Dad I never anticipated.

Hello Andres, welcome to the hood (fatherhood) and congrats on the birth of your daughter.  I have 4, first was a girl, next 3 boys.  

John, I felt the same way for a while.  With 3 sons it was less about the male/female gap and more about where's my identity.  I've learned that being a husband then father altered my identity for the better and that's part of who I am now.  And only recently after hoping for a man cave or something to call my own, I settled for a corner of my bedroom where I have a leather chair, and a foot locker with my hobby items and journal residing.  When I get overwhelmed it's good to have a place to go and do what ever I want.  What I'm getting to is, find a corner and focus on something else, reading, coin collecting, journaling, listening to an iPod, or even napping.  Good luck!

Sir replied to Conor's discussion I need help moving on, it's been six weeks now.
"Journaling, counseling, reading relevant books, ManKind Project, Codependents Anonymous,  talking here or IRL, inner child work... if it's a big enough deal to merit it, try everything in sight til something works."

"I cannot be certain, but I suspect the frustration I have felt in the criminal justice system is comparable. It is not only inefficient, but at times borders on the farcical."

Wes McArthur replied to Kerim Oğuzcan Yenidünya's discussion Is to dwell on a subject manly?
"I concur with salt. If it's a traumatic event we are discussing, then I would say take the steps you need to put it behind you. In other words, if you cannot alter it then it's probably best to drive on...just my humble opinion."
