The truth about parenting kids by a full time house husband and father of three children
"Since man was created/climbed down out of the trees/arrived through some rift in time and space(delete as applicable) he has had to cope with the thorn issue of Raising Smalls."
A bold enough statement but not particularly true because it has actually nearly always been woman's role to take the primary parenting responsibility of raising children. But the times, they are a changing, and fathers now often find themselves in uncharted territory; at home, trying to cope with tasks that they have neither been genetically programmed nor socially trained to carry out.Where do these new house husbands begin?
There are many websites and parenting books filled with child care advice which is largely contradictory as experts extemporise on the latest research into child behaviour, each claiming that theirs is the answer to dealing with the difficult issues surrounding the raising of children.
This is not one of those. The author is not a parenting expert qualified in child psychology or a super nanny that can sort out problem children just by looking at them in a stern tone of voice. He is just a house husband, a father as adrift as any other. He has no parenting advice to offer but can, perhaps, share some of the pain of Raising Smalls.

This volume fills a gap in the literature by analyzing basic issues in development economics as they affect a particular type of Third World nation - small island economies. Using practical examples from the Caribbean Basin and the South Pacific, the authors examine in depth structural and employment issues, demographic and socioeconomic issues, and environmental and natural resource issues. Their aim throughout is to identify and assess the particular and unique development problems faced by small island economies so that effective policies can be derived that will more accurately reflect socioeconomic realities in these areas. Following an introductory overview, the authors discuss the role of staple exports in the economic well being of small island economies as well as issues relating to manufacturing and service sector activities and the structural and employment impacts of tourism. In Part Two, they turn to an exploration of demographic and socioeconomic issues including the effects of urbanization on the development process, the implications of migration from and between small island nations, the brain drain problem, and the relationship between criminal activity and development. Part Three shifts the focus from people-oriented issues to concerns related to agriculture and resource utilization. Separate chapters address agriculture in the developmental mix, the use of fisheries, forest resources, minerals, and conservation issues. The final section looks at the international considerations raised by the study and outlines the policy implications of the authors' findings. Students of development economics, international trade, and finance will find this an invaluable contribution to the greater understanding of the specific development problems faced by small island economies.
