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.

What is No Shave Movember?

I learned about Movember from John Aldrich, AVP, Military Relations at American Military University via his post Get In The Game

Movember, the grass roots movement to raise awareness about men's health issues is nearly complete, and for those of you who are growing a mustache to show support for the cause, I salute you. For those who didn't participate or weren't aware of Movember, there is always next November.

After checking out what it was about, I started last November 2016 and continued without shaving (or cutting my hair) up until September 2017.

Since then, I have gained a better understanding of the movement and become more intentional about  my health, fitness and wellness.
