    When the wife says it's too cold to take them out, I feel couped-up sometimes with the kids. Shocking to discover that kids get those feelings, too. We lift the shades, turn on extra lights, watch summer movies, camp in the family room, eat hot dogs or sloppy joes. Vitamin D is a great start to your day, and activities can help those depressing thoughts and that cabin fever, too.

    That's great advice, Sonny. You sound like an attentive father. Kudos. I like how you noted that being stuck inside affects kids as much as adults. Very true. And as at-home dads, we need to be vigilant about those depression symptoms and curb them with activities as much as possible.

    Totally agree. My first winter as a SAHD was rough, and I was diagnosed with SAD. I really believe that the vitamin D helps, as does a daily "out of the house" excersize program.

    Thanks!
