Up until 14 months, Betsy spent her life in my backpack as we walked over some very big hills. Some days, if she was particularly well behaved, I would take her to a playground.She never touched an iPad or Kindle until she was at least 18-months-old - that's how much of a great dad I am.But in Autumn 2013 we decided to infiltrate the women's world of playgroups, on a mission to see if standing in a room full of mothers really was as terrifying as I was letting myself think it was.This fear of mad mothers saw me face my own prejudices and fears and even saw me taking advice from a Californian psychologist. He tried to blame my parents.Stay At Home Dads Are Not Welcome Here is a book which documents my brave journey from stealth walker to reluctant talker and, through research from around the world, tells how playgroups (child care and pre-school) are not necessarily the best thing for your child.

The book also tells the story about girls in developing countries and their struggle to get an education.

Not the Whole Story

Not the Whole Story is a compilation of sixteen stories narrated by single mothers in their own way and about their own lives. Each story is unique, but the same issues appear again and again. Abuse, parenting as single mothers, challenges in the labour market, mental health and addictions issues, a scarcity of quality childcare, immigration and status vulnerability, struggles with custody, and poverty—these factors, combined with a lack of support, contribute to their continued struggles. The themes that recur across stories illustrate that the issues the women face are not just about individual struggle; they demonstrate that major issues in Canada’s social system have been neglected in public policy. In order for these issues to be addressed we need to challenge the flawed public policies and the negative discourse that continue to marginalize single mothers—in terms of the opportunities in their own lives and in terms of how they are understood by other Canadians. The first-person narratives of the struggles and issues faced by low-income single mothers provide narrative richness and are augmented by introductory and concluding chapters that draw the narrative themes together and offer overarching discussion and analysis.

What starts out as a one-night stand ends up changing two men forever. Joaquin Almodovar has been disowned by his family and shot by a mad man. To say that he's had a few bad months would be an understatement. When he finds out he can't be the vaquero he's always been due to the extent of his injuries, Joaquin is even more lost than ever. He might be the best-lookin' man at the Mossy Glenn, according to Hector and the others, but that doesn't make Joaquin a man at all. Not when he can't cowboy up like he used to. Learning that there's more to him than the job he's always loved isn't easy, and Joaquin's not a hundred percent certain he's up to the task. In fact, he's lost so much faith in himself that he doesn't know what or who to believe in anymore. Time heals all wounds, the saying goes, but it sure doesn't seem to be doing much to heal Joaquin. It'll take the help of a man he shouldn't trust to learn that there's more to himself than how well he sits a saddle, and how good he is with a rope.
