We 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.
Did you know a total of 66% of Americans over the age of 20 are overweight, with a whopping 34% of those being obese. And did you know that a little over 9 million children in America are overweight or obese? Can you believe that a total of $1.7 trillion dollars goes toward treating overweight Americans annually?
Let's take a look at what happens to your body when you are overweight/obese. If you “live” in this category, the door is open for you to have many different types of health problems that include high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, and certain types of cancer. All of which lead to a shortened life expectancy and a decreased quality of life.
