Dictionary for Dads

Hello,

I would like to introduce you to www.DictionaryforDads.com . Having experienced many dilemmas as a father of three I made a very clear assessment that there is very little quality literature available for dads today. Our roles as fathers at times become so complex and I personally could have used some direction. Our websites' primary goal is to assist fathers in raising healthy and happy children and nurturing a great relationship with them. As per statistics 50 percent of marriages fail and we address issues as it pertains to Fathers Rights, Custody, and How to Discuss and Protect our Children Through The Divorce Process.

Dictionary for Dads arose amid concerns of every day fathers who sought to promote their knowledge, education ,experience and resources as it pertains to becoming an excellent father. As an organization our goal is to assist Dad’s in raising happy healthy children.

Our belief is that Dictionary for Dad’s will provide resources and information which will be fundamental in helping men make informed decisions based on education, research and practical experience all provided by Dictionary for Dad’s. In doing so this will not only reinforce the male role model in our society it will increase the social welfare of children throughout the world.

We understand that parenting is often complex and confusing with many variables including but not limited to nutrition, medical, psychological, developmental, environmental, marital, social and academic. It is our aim to provide every dad with education, information and resources for all dilemmas when they occur.

Dictionary for Dad’s believes that the label of a “dad” is one which is earned not one that is provided through birth. If you like the site feel free to add us as a link.

Sincerely,

Parenting Rebellious Teens

One day you wake up and find that life has changed forever. Instead of greeting you with a hug, your little boy rolls his eyes when you say "good morning" and shouts, "You're ruining my life!" You may think you've stepped into the Twilight Zone, but you've actually been thrust into your son's teen years.

During adolescence, teens start to break away from parents and become "their own person." Some talk back, ignore rules and slack off at school. Others may sneak out or break curfew. Still others experiment with alcohol, tobacco or drugs. So how can you tell the difference between normal teen rebellion versus dangerous behavior? And what's the best way for a parent to respond?

Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

Many families of defiant children live in a home that has become a battleground. In the beginning, the daily struggles can be expected. After all, we knew that problems would occur. Initially, stress can be so subtle that we lose sight of a war, which others do not realize is occurring. We honestly believe that we can work through the problems.

Outbursts, rages, and strife become a way of life (an emotionally unhealthy way of life). We set aside our own needs and focus on the needs of our children. But what does it cost us?

The Strong-Willed Out-of-Control Teen

The standard disciplinary techniques that are recommended for “typical” teenagers do not take into account the many issues facing teens with serious behavioral problems. Disrespect, anger, violent rages, self-injury, running away from home, school failure, hanging-out with the wrong crowd, drug abuse, theft, and legal problems are just some of the behaviors that parents of defiant teens will have to learn to control.
