If you’re a parent, chances are you’ve read a blog or two about the joys and challenges of parenting. But what about the other side of the parenting coin? The side that’s filled with frustration, exhaustion, and sometimes even resentment?
That’s where “Dad and Buried” comes in.
“Dad and Buried” is a blog written by a stay-at-home dad who is, in his own words, “over it.” The blog is filled with brutally honest posts about the challenges of parenting, from the mundane (dealing with never-ending laundry) to the more serious (mental health and the challenges of marriage).
The blog is not for everyone – it’s definitely not for the faint of heart. But for those who are looking for an honest, no-holds-barred take on parenting, “Dad and Buried” is definitely worth a read.
The Man Behind the Blog
I started Dad and Buried as a way to vent about the frustrations of parenting. It quickly became clear that I wasn’t the only one who felt this way. The blog took off, and I started receiving emails and messages from other parents who related to my experiences.
It’s been gratifying to know that I’m not alone in this, and that there are other parents out there who feel the same way I do. I’m also proud to have created a safe space for parents to share their own stories and experiences.
The blog has also been a way for me to connect with other like-minded parents, and to build a community of support. I’m grateful to have found this community, and I hope that Dad and Buried can continue to be a source of support and information for parents everywhere.
Why He Started It All
It all started when my dad died. I was only six years old, and I was the one who found him. It was a shock, to say the least. My mom was a mess, and she turned to alcohol to cope. She would drink all day and into the night, until she passed out. I was left to fend for myself a lot, and I quickly learned how to take care of myself. I also learned how to take care of my mom when she was too drunk to do it herself. I would make sure she got to bed, and I would make sure she didn’t throw up in her sleep. It was a hard time, but I got through it.
Eventually, my mom sobered up and things started to get better. But I had already developed a bit of a rebellious streak. I was determined to do things my own way, and I didn’t want to listen to anyone. I started to get into trouble at school, and I got into a lot of fights. My mom tried to talk to me, but I didn’t want to listen. I was angry at the world, and I didn’t know how to deal with it.
Eventually, I realized that I was only hurting myself. I was the one who was getting into trouble, and I was the one who was making my mom worry. I decided to change my ways, and I started to focus on my future. I went to college and got a degree, and I started my own business. I’m doing well now, and I’m finally at peace with myself. I’m still rebellious, but I’ve channeled that energy into something positive.
I’m grateful to my dad for starting it all. Without him, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
The Blog’s Controversial Topics
There’s no shortage of controversial topics when it comes to parenting. From vaccination to co-sleeping, parents can find themselves at odds with each other over what’s best for their children.
One of the most controversial topics is whether or not to spank your child. Proponents of spanking argue that it’s an effective way to discipline a child, while opponents argue that it’s a form of child abuse.
There’s also the debate over whether or not to allow your child to use screens, such as smartphones and tablets. Some parents argue that screens are harmful to children, while others argue that they can be used in moderation.
Then there’s the ever-present debate over whether or not to vaccinate your child. Parents who choose not to vaccinate their children often do so because they believe that vaccines are unsafe. However, the vast majority of the scientific community agrees that vaccines are safe and effective.
Whatever your stance on these controversial topics, it’s important to remember that there’s no one right answer. Every family is different, and what works for one family might not work for another.

The Bottom Line
There’s no sugar-coating it: parenting is hard. It’s a full-time job with very little down time, and it often feels like you’re constantly running on empty. As a result, it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind and forget what’s really important.
But here’s the thing: as hard as parenting is, it’s also the most rewarding job in the world. It’s a chance to shape a young life, instill your values, and watch your child grow and learn. And while the day-to-day challenges can be draining, it’s important to remember the big picture.
So what’s the bottom line? Parenting is hard, but it’s also incredibly rewarding. It’s a chance to make a real difference in your child’s life, and that’s something that’s worth fighting for.
