Who knew that shopping centres served canapes over the Christmas period?

We discuss Christmas shopping, how much we love (or do not love) to shop as well the difficulty of shirt sizes and what to do when you really don't want a gift. We also discuss gift buying for partners (yikes)!

Apparently the different attitude of men and women to shopping is a remnant of our past as hunters and gatherers. Try telling that to Matty and Ryan who both love to shop.

Is the modern man a hunter or a gentleman? A manual labourer or a technophile? In today's culture the modern man usually is a mix of many things. The modern man must be adaptable.

Gender roles are changing and blending together and the stay-at-home dad or part time dad population is growing.

More fathers than ever are participating in their children's nurturing and upbringing.

The thing is that fathers and mothers come into the parenting process differently though. For the mother, the connection is biological. It's a part of her.

Fathering, on the other hand, is less so. Therefore, it's important for men to learn the skills they need to be a good dad. For some guys it's more intuitive, like kicking a football, but most guys need a coach or some direction.

DADDY EATS LAST discusses what it means to be a man and a father in modern society and all the issues that comes with both.
