It’s official.  I dropped off the letter of intent and statement of interests today.  I am seeking a 3 year term on the school board for our district.  Wish me luck.

Given my background in technology, I imagine that if I get elected, I will be on the technology committee.  Anything that we can do to prepare students for the future, be it technology or what have you, we need to find a way to do it.

That doesn’t mean the end for WhyNotFathers.  I will be moving more toward a goal of writing articles and posts geared to stay at home dads.  I am also going to work on writing a book about David.  Well, it will be about our fight with Reactive Attachment Disorder and mental illness in a child.  It’s affect on the family and the stresses that are involved in raising a child with RAD.  Look for that sometime in the fall of 2013 at the earliest.

I am kind of excited about it.  After… Continue Reading
