About Fathers, Work and Family

Fathers, Work and Family is a blog dedicated to helping fathers balance work and family and to encouraging more supportive workplaces. I hope you find FWF to be a valuable resource, a fun place to visit, and a place where working dads can feel that they are not alone in their work-family challenges.

The blog draws some from my own life as a busy working dad and the experiences of the working dads I know. It is also based on my academic and professional background in work-family issues in the workplace. This article sums up the blog nicely.

Fathers, Work and Family shares personal stories and advice for dads, highlights company best practices, translates academic research and comments on current events relating to work-family. Some articles will be very personal, others will focus more on current events, media controversies and business practices. I cover a wide range of topics, as you can see in the categories list on the right hand side of the screen.

I am also very open and responsive to reader feedback, so please comment on posts and follow me on Facebook and Twitter for more information pertaining to working dads. I do run guest content from time to time, so fell free to contact me if you’d like to contribute to the site.
