All posts must be thought about, deleted, re-written, mulled over, left for six months.

And then posted.

and it is only one and-a-half years. Not quite the glacial speed you are sugesting Daddelion.hmm

Pedant. Never let exaggeration get in the way of the truth.

Hyperbole rules.

Pan Tue 05-Feb-13 13:24:46

Hmmm..I'll have a bit of a think about that, and get back to

See you in 2014.

Don't stop now gents - you've almost doubled the length of the thread in a couple of days

Pan Tue 05-Feb-13 22:05:50

Whoa!! Time out.

Daddelion Wed 06-Feb-13 07:19:55

Yes but we're the same person, name changing to make it look like a conversation aren't we Daddelion?

Ehhrrr I mean Pan?

Pan Wed 06-Feb-13 07:59:36

Don't drag me into this.

The fact that Mumsnet is a much better developed website than Dadsnet reflects on how Dad has a much smaller voice than Mum, where the family is concerned. The childcare element moves in Mum's world like a well oiled machine. Ironically in todays society Dad will spend as much time with his children as Mum does. It's about time Dad began to fight his this I mean he has to speak out about his family life, good and bad. Let's hear it from you Dad, try not to feel overwhelmed.

It's about time I posted on here.

Women are paranoid overthinkers. If they have a query, they'll post it online for a bunch of strangers to mull over having first discussed it with their friends, mother, sisters, in-laws, exes, old work colleagues and inant school friends from a reunion 20 years ago, plus the shop worker, checkout girl, postman and milkman and partner.

Dads will just shrug and get on with it, having figured it all out in twenty seconds. That's why no Dad's forum has much traffic, no market for it.

Although if youwant to read a Dad's point of view, try the fathers4justice or families need fathers groups, now there's some opinions to rival teen the strongest ones on MN :D

I've been having a think about this...

Ilikethebreeze Thu 09-May-13 22:18:29

So have I TiggyD

Ilikethebreeze Thu 09-May-13 22:19:29

But maybe not the same thoughts as you now I have read the post better!

I post on the FNF forum a lot - lots of dads, though most of them are there because they're looking for help in defending their kids' rights to have a father.

Saying that there are a lot of female members there too.

TiggyD Wed 15-May-13 22:15:46

...and I think that...

Hold on! FNF? What's that?

lostdad Thu 16-May-13 14:34:43

FNF is `Families Need Fathers'. Despite the name it's actually a parenting organisation and not a fathers rights one.

TiggyD Sat 27-Jul-13 23:05:59

Might have been:
the French Nail Foundation?
Fish Need Fishermen?
Falmouth Naughty Football?

AlbertGiordino Tue 12-Nov-13 13:35:37

I've been having a think about your points TiggyD...

lostdad Tue 12-Nov-13 16:39:40

I use the FNF forum a lot to give help to parents who are seeking to stay in their childrens' lives post separation - so it is mainly dads there.

TiggyD Tue 12-Nov-13 17:54:17

I think there's something about the site "Mumsnet" that leads people to believe it's for women. Not sure what it could be. Hmm.

'By parents for parents'.

Either the tag line is dads are not parents. Which is it?
