My friends.  If you came here when you typed in http://www.fightingforanswers.com, then you are in the right place.  In the coming weeks, we are going to work on rebranding Why Not Fathers into something more appropriate for the topic.  Why Not Fathers won’t be retired completely, rather it will move toward its intended purpose of topics for stay at home dads.

Five years.  :) on one hand that is exciting, on the other hand, it is a shame that after all this time,  we are still struggling to get David appropriate services where he needs them, rather than where someone else thinks that they should be.  Here is a link to the very first post!  http://whynotfathers.com/2010/11/finding-myself.html

Thank you for sticking with me, and my family.  But thank you most of all for trying to understand David and the struggles that he has faced.


“The schools in our state aren’t the only ones having issues with properly caring for the mentally ill. Everyone is having the same issue, what do you do with a mentally ill child? Well, let’s lock them in a room and pretend they don’t exist. And we can’t do that because sooner or later that child is going to need to be treated, if we don’t treat them now, they are going to be treated in a prison later. So, it has to start somewhere.” – Carl Young from Disability Rights North Dakota #NDRN2015 #disabilityrights #humanrights #rootedinrights #kids #dad. Carl has a project called “Why Not Fathers” that provides resources and guidance to other fathers of kids with special needs. Check out Craig’s blog at whynotfathers.com
