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.

Macho Money Definitions - What Is A Bond?

vid_whatisbond.jpgWhat is a “bond?” No, not a secret agent from England, but an investment tool used to grow wealth.  According to the Wall Street Journal, bonds are a form of debt. Bonds are loans, or IOUs, but you serve as the bank.  You loan your money to a company, a city, the government – and they promise to pay you back in full, with regular interest payments.

Pretty understandable, but for greater detail and examples, click on the video and listen to Scott Halliwell from USAA explain.

Quick Hitter - Helping Kids Cope with Deployments

In this "Quick Hitter" video on Helping Kids Cope with Deployments, we have a tough question from an anonymous male military spouse that Elizabeth Cabibi, M.S.,LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist) answers.

"What is the best thing to do for a child that won't calm down from missing the parent that is deployed? I tried cuddling him and just being there but didn't really seem to help."
