News emerged this morning of a child that he
fathered created with someone who wasn’t his wife. Classy!
Donna Savattere, then a 35 year old production assistant at CBS Sports, has been reportedly paid to stay quiet for years, while raising Chloe, their now-seven year old daughter.
Our buddies Clay and Brad at DadLabs have created a video to let you know what’s in store for the Dad 2.013 Summit happening this weekend in Houston, Texas.
In it, they talk to Doug French and Dan Pacini, the co-creators of the Dad 2.0 Summit, as well as discussing current and previous sponsors, panels and attendees.
“His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the Whopper Jr.”
And that’s why Linda Phiel bought her father one last Whopper Jr. from Burger King. At. His. Funeral.
United States Army Drill Sergeant Terry Achane, the father whose wife put up their baby for adoption without his knowledge or approval, has his daughter back.
The reunion came after a Utah court reversed the adoption – much to the disappointment of adoptive parents Jared and Kristi Frei. Twenty-two months ago, the Frei family adopted baby Teleah from an adoption agency. This last Thursday, Teleah was returned to her father.
For now, at least.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the United Kingdom is seeing a boom in stay-at-home fathers, partially due to a recent recession in the country.
In fact, a record 10% of men now care for their children, according to the Office for National Statistics. Stay-at-home fathers are at their highest level since statistics for the segment started being collected in 1993.
So there’s this movie that ended up defining a generation of dads, called Mr. Mom. It glorified the buffoon father – one who was so entrenched in work that if he were required to spend any time at home with his own children, he’d end up covered in baby feces and lighting dinner on fire.
Begrudgingly, fathers yes deared through the image of the buffoon father for some years, then fought it. And all that happened in a really short timeframe. Now, evidently, the Mr. Mom image is dead. Just like that. Just. Like. That.
Sadly, though, it’s not as easy as saying that the image is dead – not even if The Wall Street Journal says it – which they sure did. And not even if The Huffington Post does a eulogy for it, which they did.
