By  •  News

Dr. Peggy Drexler’s got the most recent fatherhood-tagged post on ol’ HuffPo – and she brings up a complicated topic: whether fathers are able to affect daughters just by being around (and then scaling upward the better they are). Her argument is that – yes, fathers shape daughters’ lives, but that just saying it “lacks dimension.”

I think giving things dimensions sometimes cheapens nature’s finer designs.

UK Fathers Want Practical Information About Childbirth…and Tea

By  •  News

England’s National Health Service released a publication for medical centers and hospitals outlining all the wacky and wonderful information that, well, they wanted to health care professionals to know. Here’s a zinger: “To help overcome anxieties about giving birth,” the manual states, “planned hospital visits can be valuable to give expectant parents, especially fathers/partners, practical information about such matters as car parking and cafés.”

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to child birth in England, which I now can’t imagine without the Benny Hill theme song.

CPSC Joins “National Window Safety Week”, We All Missed It

By  •  News
