logo_NAHDN-horiz.gifWe know that many our visitors here at Macho Spouse are dads - some working and some stay-at-home-dads - who are looking for answers to the question "How do I do this?" We are constantly looking for resources to help all male military spouses and we are happy to share a great online resource for dads.

Help is available for male military spouse dads at the National At-Home Dad Network. All dads can learn from this online resource that provides support, education and advocacy for fathers who are the primary caregivers of their children.


The National At-Home Dad Network is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing support, education and advocacy to fathers who are the primary caregivers of their children. The organization has chapters in over 69 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada and hosts one of the longest-running fatherhood events in the world, the 18th Annual At-Home Dads Convention in Denver, CO on Oct. 18-19, 2013.

The National At-Home Dad Network recognizes two of the greatest challenges at-home dads face - Isolation and Identity - and has some great information for dads on how to overcome these challenges. We encourage male military spouse dads to visit their site and we will be sharing some of their content here on Macho Spouse.

Video - Importance of Communication Part 1 - The Cornerstone of a Healthy Military Marriage

One of the first things I learned from interviewing male military spouses who have successful marriages is that they all talk with their wives. I'm not referring to common daily small talk, but actual deep communication about their feelings, desires, and fears. The stuff that can make most men squirm; talk of love, dreams, hope, and sometimes about what just happened on the Bachelor are all conversations these guys aren't afraid to tackle.

This video is the first in a multi-part series on communication that features Scott Stanley, PhD. University of Denver, and male spouses from across the nation sharing insight into why it's important for military families to practice good communication skills.

(Interviews with Scott Stanley, PhD., Patrick Donaldson, Glen Mixon, Francis Guerrero, Bill Keller, and Jeremy Hilton.)

Defining Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD or PTS) is a serious battle injury we wanted to know more about, so we found Nicholas Lind, PsyD, Co-Owner of Post Trauma Resources (Columbia, SC).  In this multi-part series, Dr. Lind defines PTSD, explains the symptoms, shares how and when to seek help, and offers insight into living with someone who struggles with PTS symptoms.  This first video offers a thorough explanation of what causes PTSD and how it may affect our families.
