A group of public service announcements attached to the Department of Health and Human Services have successfully encouraged fathers to speak with their teens about delaying sex.
A study was done by Jonathan L. Blitstein (and friends) that analyzed changes in the communication between parents and their kids over an 18-month period following exposure to the Parents Speak Up National Campaign.
You’ve got a tall, themed-drink in your hand. Your wife stands on the edge of the carpet, looking for you down the two narrow aisles in front of her. You peek around your slot machine, make eye-contact between two cigar-wielding men, see that she wants in, and you quickly make the switch. Now you’re standing on the edge of the carpet, by the door.

Also, this article, because of it’s nature, is “strongly-worded.” So, you might not want to read this aloud in a kindergarten.
This gem from Friday isn’t father-specific, but it should make you think twice if your child’s at the age where they’re starting to be indoctrinated into the world of pop music. So – fathers of tweens and young teens, listen up.
Psychology professor Dawn R. Hobbs, of the SUNY Albany knows what Pop and R&B music’s all about. And evidently, it’s all about sex – well, 92% at least.
We skipped this one last week but knew that somehow, we’d have to come back to it: the quality of a father’s parenting will have an effect on a …
