For the upcoming Father’s Day on Sunday, June 21, why not think “outside of the box” by giving dad something other than a standard item like tie, cologne or tools? Instead of buying him something, why not take him somewhere? If you’re not sure where to take him, keep it fun, uncomplicated, nearby and inexpensive (since he probably wouldn’t expect an all-expenses-paid trip to Hawaii).
Here are some fun and affordable Father’s Day ideas:
You’ve probably heard the saying, “The quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Whether he’s a gourmet chef or invariably burns the toast, we have yet to meet a dad who doesn’t love a good home-cooked meal.
Letting dad sleep-in this Father’s Day and cooking him something from the heart can be an easy win. Here are three Father’s Day recipes that children can help you make:
Not that many decades ago, stay-at-home mothers were the norm in the United States. That started changing during and after World War II because of numerous factors, including the need for women factory workers during the booming war years and a growing post-war economy. This led to two-working-parent households seeking to “keep up with the Joneses,” more women attending college than ever before, and more women joining the workforce to earn their own paycheck or expand their horizons.
Today, many women continue to balance career and family, and some are the primary breadwinner. However, an interesting trend has emerged: Although women were once tasked with raising the children, the past two decades have seen a steady increase in the number of men who choose to be stay-at-home dads, although for different reasons. Since 1989, the number of men who do not work outside the home has nearly doubled.
