Save Australia Day

I am one Australian who is going to encourage Australian Dads to hold a family celebration in observance of Australia Day. We have good reason to do so. Australia makes the top ten countries listed in the US News Accolades and comes second in the UN Quality of Life Index. Having said all that, I… Read More

TIME is our greatest asset. Theophrastus said, “Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend”. How we spend it is important. This is especially true as a father. Children demand and need our time. Our spouse requires our time, and more generally our relationships require our time. We must avoid wasting precious time… Read More

Being There

Every now and then a moment comes along that takes your breath away. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. If that is the case a good video or film can be worth a million. That is why you must watch the below video and I mean must! It truly is amazing. Seventeen… Read More

My Hidden Secret

  I don’t know about your Christmas, but our family had a very enjoyable family gathering. Our whole family gets together immediately before Christmas to allow our family members to meet with their own or extended family on Christmas Day. We started this custom some years ago and it works for us. The good news… Read More

Star Wars & the Christmas Story

The cinema was packed, but we just had to see ‘The Last Jedi’ for ourselves. We were so fixated we took the last two seats in the front row.  The anticipation was building as the text scrolled across the star filled universe. In a galaxy far, far away, a story was about to unfold that… Read More

Affectionate Fathers

On my Thursday date night with my wife last week. (Yes, we still have Date Nights and you can too.) I saw a sight that warmed my heart. A father was walking along the street with his young teenage son, hugging his head and shoulders. They were both laughing and hugging each other. Perhaps they… Read More

Hollywood Hypocrisy

I have watched the continuing current expose of Hollywood’s culture of sexual depravity with breathless be-wonderment. Its been a long time coming and long overdue!  Mike Powell has written and excellent article in the Spectator about the subject called ‘Hollywood Hypocrisy’. “Mike Pence, the current Vice President of the United States, has been mocked and… Read More

Raising Daughters

Recently I spent the day with my eldest son at the Embolden Conference. Travelling there and back, we talked a lot as fathers and sons do, and the subject got around to the challenge of raising daughters compared to sons. My son has 5 daughters 9yrs to 1yr and I have 4 sons and one… Read More

International Mens Day 2017

The 19 November was International Men’s Day (IMD), and what a day it was. Dads4Kids put out an IMD media release with men from five other nations, if you include Glen Poole from the UK, currently living in Australia. Where did it all start? What is your involvement with International Men’s Day? I thought you’d… Read More

  The people of Australia have spoken. They don’t want to keep marriage as it is and has always been for thousands of years, through countless cultures, from time immemorial. They want to redefine marriage. How sad! The Postal Survey was mailed out to 16,006,180 Australians. Of these, 7,817,247 voted ‘Yes’. That is less than… Read More
