In honor of the men we love, this month’s Father’s Day Special Edition is designed specifically to cater to Dad’s needs.
Written “For the Men!” in our lives, it helps you and your partner team up to tackle a variety of topics divorced dads, repartnered dads and stepdads struggle with most often.
Stepmoms worldwide tell us they look forward to this annual edition because it’s a great conversation starter—an issue you can both read (and enjoy) together! Here’s a look at what’s inside:
