Cofton Hackett dads launch Stay & Play at new village hall

  • Written by Sas Taylor for B31 Voices

  • Sam Chatterley and Dan Rainsford met at a playgroup and had a common bond over not feeling like part of the group since they are stay at home dads

  • Together they decided to start Cradle to Crayon, a group that hosts dads, moms, and other types of carers so their children (ages 0-5 years) can play together and the caregivers can socialize

  • Rainsford told Taylor, “It can feel isolating at times on days you don’t get out. There aren’t many stay-at-home dads, so you can feel a bit excluded in some groups.”

  • Both men had careers that they left behind so they could care for their little ones full time while their wives pursue their own careers

  • Chatterley told Taylor, “The best things are watching Maisie grow, teaching her new things and getting out to play centres, zoos etc. It can sometimes feel a little lonely without the adult conversation, but there’s really nothing bad about it. I love it… it’s an honour.”

  • And Rainsford added, “I see it as a gift, I wont get this time with her again. Coaching and seeing Lucy’s development on a daily basis.”

  • Check out this video BBC did about the dads and the group! Stay-at-home dads set up father-friendly playgroup

Fort Worth teen gets his own Marvel comic and episode on Disney+

  • Written by Eric Alvarez for WFAA

  • Being 13 isn’t easy but Braden Baker found a way to look past the troubles of puberty and make a positive impact!

  • When his dog, Chewie, chewed up his hearing aids in 2017, Braden had to deal with the silence until they could get him new ones

  • Of course the new ones cost a lot of money which got him thinking about the people who could benefit from the costly tools

  • Instead of just thinking about it, Braden jumped into action!

  • He started a GoFundMe page to raise the funds and awareness of this need

  • Eventually his efforts were recognized by Ellen DeGeneres and Disney, landing him a spot in their Marvel Hero Project!

  • His story is now a comic and an episode in the show on Disney+. Be sure to check it out!
