Dads and Social Outlets

I can't believe that I engaged in the silly no-dads-allowed drama last week without referencing something actually thoughtful on the subject of dads and social support in a world dominated by a mom-centric baby-industrial complex.

Paul Nyhan, who is the best parenting reporter in the country (in addition to being a nice guy and a helpful erstwhite co-worker), penned a piece last week asking if guys really had to have support groups. Was there a yawning need, he wondered, to build a whole apparatus of hospital educational courses and playgroups and magazines specifically tailored to the needs of dads?

Well worth the read.

(If you're counting, this makes two straight posts that have referenced Paul's work. So if you're not reading/subscribing to his blog, you're missing out.)
