Last Sunday, Oprah, Iyanla and friends tried to tackle fatherless sons again. I want to preface this post with: I’m happy this are discussing this issue and sparking dialouge but I absolutely hate the way they are doing it. The thing that bothered me most was the faux attempt to fix father and son relationships […]

I must say, nothing makes me happier than hearing about my friends’ children. But my real joy comes when it’s my male friends doing the talking. I don’t know what’s so special about men doing what I’ve started to call “talking Daddy,” but I just can’t get enough. Luckily for me, a quick trip to […]
I hate the way people talk about “daddy issues.” I think the biggest misconception about daddy issues is that people know how to deal with them. It took me easily 15 years to figure out that “dealing” with my father meant forgiving him and accepting him where he was. It took me a few more […]
This something I’ve been meaning to write forever. It looks like I first tried to write this last June and I’ve come back to see that I only wrote two sentences (and I’m not even going to use them). I want to write more about fatherhood in general, but I figured it would make sense […]
I figured since I’m going to Cool Kids PhD Club retreat next weekend and I had to submit a working paper, might as well drop it off here if anyone’s inclined to read and/or comment. Daughters and their Relationship with their Nonresident Fathers (working title too). Enjoy. peace, e.
I read somewhere that A Belle in Brooklyn writes all her posts on her Blackberry. Since I have an hour commute to work I figured I’d give it a shot. And I really need to write since I’ve already fallen off my write every day wagon. #weak At any rate, I’ve been thinking a lot […]
The title alone makes me cringe: Childless man freed after serving time for child support violations. Yeah read that again, this dude has no kids and has gone to jail, no once, but TWICE over child support violations. Basically what happened was dude was with some chick, she got pregnant and told him it was […]
Man, a President who supports responsible fatherhood makes me so happy! President Obama wrote an article about being a good father for Parade Magazine. Read the entire article here. peace, e.
Fathers, and pretty much anyone that deals with them. I’ve called on pastors nationwide to stop the stream of momma, grandmother, aunts and female cousins coming to the altar for baby dedications with no man in sight. That pastor should say, “Until I personally meet with the father, I will not dedicate this child.” Somebody […]
I saw Notorious on Friday. In my opinion, it was ok. I think they could and should have developed every character way more. In spite of that, I was pleasantly surprised to see a lot about fatherhood in the movie. Biggie’s struggle to be a good father, a litle insight into why he wasn’t the […]
