Comment on Woodworking Projects for Kids: Free Online Resources by Carl http://naturalpapa.com/homeschool/woodworking-projects-for-kids-online-resources/#comment-1318330 Sun, 20 May 2018 12:32:50 +0000 http://naturalpapa.com/?p=311#comment-1318330 You created one amazing resource here Papa. I doff my hat to you and your work ethic. It’s great to see folk teaching children how to create wonders with their hands and learning skills that will last them a lifetime.

I highly agree with your stance on cheap tools, it’s something I try teach my readers to avoid on my blog http://www.tilersplace.com. A decent tool will get the job done and last you a long time, a cheap one will just end up as a regretful purchase that ruins the end result.

Comment on Fatherhood: 100 Ways to Be a Better Father by Chris S http://naturalpapa.com/fatherhood/100-ways-to-be-a-better-father/#comment-1316832 Fri, 13 Apr 2018 13:10:50 +0000 http://naturalpapa.com/?p=681#comment-1316832 Lots of good points on this list. I am a single dad with two toddlers. So, I am having to do every role and every job since the kids are with me full time right now. It’s true that there are still families where dad works and Mom doesn’t. I’m not sure why people are upset at that. Being a mom is a hard, busy, and stressful job. I guess Kristen brought up a good point though that all people should know how to cook, do laundry, etc. I’m sure that you as a dad teach your kids that because when I cook, my kids want to help, and I let them! Great list though, thanks.

If you’re going to look like a total ass and judge someone and put them down, IE. NOT act like a man, perhaps you should try to sound more intelligent doing so and also make sure you can spell. It looks like you need to go back to elementary school and perhaps have someone teach you some manners which would include, if you’re not going to say something intelligent keep your mouth shut. The irony is you’re on this website and you’re acting like your parents failed you in that aspect. Keep working on being a better person, because this post shows otherwise.

Comment on Providing for Your Family isn’t about Presents, it’s about Presence by Nazhrin http://naturalpapa.com/fatherhood/providing-for-your-family-isn%e2%80%99t-about-presents-it%e2%80%99s-about-presence/#comment-1314586 Sun, 25 Feb 2018 12:33:29 +0000 http://naturalpapa.com/?p=1331#comment-1314586 Been in the south african military for nine years now…married for 5 of those years. Never had a problem with leaving home and go to another part of the country. I always told myself im doing it so my kids have everything they need. January 2018 i couldnt do it anymore. Find myself struggling with the decision to quit army and be with family full time. My daughter is autistic and not alot of schools for children with special needs in south africa. So wife stays with children close to the school. Do i leave army and help raise them or just be the army dad who provides. I dont know.

The seeds themselves are coated in opium latex from being inside the Pod. You can rinse this latex off of the seeds ( since all of the alkaloids are water soluble) and glean a decent amount of opium tea From the process.

Comment on Advice to Myself as a Young Man by Indira http://naturalpapa.com/fatherhood/life-advice-to-myself-as-a-young-man/#comment-1313354 Tue, 23 Jan 2018 14:55:14 +0000 http://naturalpapa.com/?p=1713#comment-1313354 What a wonderful article even to those who are in their middle age and beyond. We all need reminding of the simple truths that failed us while growing up. As a grandmum, this is an amazing article to share with my 14 year old grandson who is not short for anything but experience..his biggest teacher yet to meet.

May I also add even us ladies can resonate with the advice and it is not strictly for the gents..Thank you.

Peace & Good Health for 2018 & beyond

Comment on Homebirth Dads: 10 Questions with Steve C. by Mary http://naturalpapa.com/natural-parenting/homebirth-natural-parenting/homebirth-dads-10-questions-with-steve-c/#comment-1313062 Tue, 16 Jan 2018 08:04:19 +0000 http://naturalpapa.com/?p=720#comment-1313062 Hi, I’m trying to get my husband on board to have a baby after a previous hopsital birth. However he hates the words “pregnancy”, “childbirth”, “labor” etc and does not want to read or listen to anything about it. He claims I was not patient enough with my first birth which was extremely traumatic and left me with severe PPD. I’m interested in going unassisted or have a midwife in attendance if possible. So how do you think would I be able to convince him to have another baby?

Being patient with yourself is some of the best advice anyone can follow as a parent. You will make plenty of mistakes but it’s best to learn from them and move forward.

It does however act chemically on the MU opioid receptors providing focus and mild pain relief
