Recently I shared a list of Last Minute MOTHER'S DAY GIFTS you can order from Amazon if you have Prime with 2 Day Shipping.  (If you don't have Amazon Prime you can CLICK HERE to get it. The price is increasing soon, so now is the time to sign up.  It's worth every penny!)  All of these are availble for Amazon Prime shipping except the final item on the list. The watch has a longer shipping time.

So, I thought I had better include a list for Dads. These are some great things that my husband has and loves or things I know he will love.

HOT SAUCE MAKING KIT
This kit has everything you need to make 7 bottles of lip smacking gourmet hot sauce right from home. My husband loves spicy things, but no one else in our family can handle it, so he would LOVE this gift!!!


SRIRACHA TEE SHIRT FOR MEN
Speaking of hot sauce, I bought this shirt for my husband 2 years ago for Christmas and he loves it! Everywhere he goes other men ask him where he got it!


WATERPROOF SMART PHONE CASE
If you have a sporty husband or dad who like paddle-boarding, kayaking, etc. he will love this gift! We bought these last Summer to use on the beach and in the local pool and it really works! It is amazing for underwater photos, but it's also really great to just protect your phone while at the beach or pool.


OUTDOOR IGNITION CANISTER STOVE
If you've got an outdoorsy man in your life (or a backyardsy one like me) he will love this. A teeny-tiny, compact, camping stove (it's under 4 oz in its case)! Boils water in about a minute at sea level. And it's UNDER $10!!



BALL PARK BLUE PRINT
If you have a sports lover who is obsessed with a certain team or a certain stadium then this would be a really cool gift! Frame it and hang it in his man cave. He'll love you for it!



ATARI FLASHBACK GAME CONSOLE
Oh, man. I really want this for ME! Kids of the 80's will love this gift. It comes with 105 Built-In Games and you can plug and play on any TV. This set includes 2 Atari Controllers.

COUNSELING WITH OUR COUNCILS
In 1997, Elder M. Russell Ballard wrote, Church and family councils are one of the best resources in winning the battle for the souls of our Father s children. Fifteen years later, that is still true, and with the growth of the Church, the mounting challenges we face in the world, and the release of the new Church Handbook comes the revised edition of Counseling with Our Councils. You can find my free Family Council Planner HERE.


MEN'S WOODEN WATCH
I got my husband a wooden watch last year and he loves it! He has not been a very big "watch guy" before, but these cool watches are the exception. This watch is made from Eco-friendly Black Sandalwood which comes from sustainably harvested wood. Authentic quartz movement for precise time-keeping and long-lasting use. NOTE: This gift is NOT available for Amazong Prime shipping.

3 KEY THINGS to Help Parents Protect their Families from the dangerous side of Smart Phones

PLEASE NOTE: Compensation for this post was provided by WebSafety. I am sharing this resource with you because I truly believe in this product and use it myself to help my own family stay safe on our smart phones and to limit screen time.


This past school year our oldest daughter left the comforts of an Elementary School a few blocks from our house and started attending Junior High three miles from our home. We had not wanted to get her a cell phone until she was at least 14, but suddenly it seemed like it would be a good idea. So, we gave her my husband's old phone, forbade her from joining any social media platforms until she was at least 14, and started the complicated journey of navigating teens and cell phones for the first time. 

This is a scary world, but we have been told repeatedly by Prophets and Apostles that the Internet and Technology can be a source for great information, spreading our testimonies, and sharing positive messages.  But we all know how much bad there is out there!  I was overwhelmed and worried that we would make a mistake as we started this journey with our daughter.

In a recent Ensign Article a member asked:

How can our family take advantage of what is available on the Internet while avoiding objectionable material and people of questionable character?

William C. Porter, an associate professor of communications at Brigham Young University, highlighted three key things to help parents protect their family against the dangerous areas of the online world:

1. Parental awareness - "Parents need to make online use a family, not a private, activity. Put the computer in a room that the whole family uses, not in a child’s bedroom. Be aware of when and how your child uses [technology]."

2. Family rules - "Family rules about [technology] use are essential. It is important that you and your family members agree on the who, how, when, and what of computer use".


3. Filtering - "You will want to check what is available to your child wherever he or she uses the Internet. If help is needed in addition to filtering, software is available that tracks [usage] and reports to you."
