Involved fathers = better grades

The National Household Education Survey by the U.S. Department of Education found:

· Students whose fathers are highly involved at school are 43% more likely to receive "A" grades.

· Children of highly involved resident fathers are 55% more likely to enjoy school than children with uninvolved fathers.

· Students with nonresident fathers who participated in even one activity at school are 39% less likely to repeat a grade and 50% less likely to experience serious disciplinary problems.


I rattle off these facts whenever people ask me, “Bogey, why did you decide to become a stay-at-home dog when you could’ve been a stud for a mutt breeder or maybe even a super hero?” I mean, c'mon... Stew tries his best, but I have to do this for the sake of Claire. She needs me. And I need her - those kisses always warm my heart!

Here's where I put stuff I support...

About This Blog

Commentary from a stay-at-home dad on daily happenings and misadventures while helping raise a wonderful little girl. The goal is to employ wit, sarcasm and/or humor to make the blog pseudo-entertaining. Then again, setting goals never really worked for me, but maybe you'll chuckle anyway.

OUR FAMILY - Provides a brief bio on each family member.

THE SAHD CLUB - A rip-off of the letter written by the kids from the 1980's blockbuster hit, The Breakfast Club.

THE DOG DISH - Here you'll find the occasional rant or story written from a dog's point of view.

COMEDY - Here you'll find stuff I think is funny, typically video clips, cartoons or jokes.

LINKS - Just what the name implies.

PAW-LITICS - More rants, typically directed at despicable politicians with whom I disagree.

VIDEO VAULT - Home videos of Claire set to some of our favorite songs.

BUY STUFF - My online store (that is if I ever actually create one).
