Men’s sheds can help connect men with their communities and main****** society and at the same time act as a catalyst in stimulating their community's economic activities.

    hi Dad's, im in the process of putting together a facebook page as well as a website as a place for stay at home Dad's to get together to discuss things man-style. If this sounds like something that would interest you check out www.facebook.com/pages/Stay-at-Home-Dads

    We are only just getting started but obviously the more Dad's we get the more discussion and content we'll have :-)

    Hi,

    I'm new to Bub Hub. This is a really great site. I used to work for Menline and I highly reccomend this service for crisis issues. For longer term problems related to parenting and relationships I would reccomend face to face counselling. If you want to know more about counselling see my website www.JeremyShubCounselling.com.au there is a page on the nuts and bolts of counselling.

    Cheers Jeremy
