It's that time of year when you catch up with family and maybe partake in a few Christmas festivities.

We discuss conflict resolution in general before we focus in on Christmas and avoiding the pitfalls of fighting with family this Christmas.

Conflict resolution is a way for two or more parties to find a peaceful solution to a disagreement among them, sometimes this is impossible at this time of year, but we discuss our tips and tricks to avoid a big bun fight with anyone at Christmas.

By the way if you're always fighting with your family at this time of year it's actually called 'Hypercopresence' which occurs when families are in each other's pockets 24 hours a day even though they have not seen each other in months.

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.
