Peeping Dad:
Secretly monitoring your nanny's caregiving techniques is unconstitutional, politically incorrect and a blatant invasion of privacy. Your choice. If you do want to pry, the XCam2 Wireless Video Camera from X10 Home Solutions ( is the perfect high-tech toy for dads who like to keep an eye on things. No larger than a golf bar, it integrates a color analog video camera, microphone, and 2.4-GHz transmitter into a single device that signals up to 100 feet. Also ideal for supervising the kids' activities or guarding the front door against intruders, it features one other big plus: When not serving as you personal electronic policeman, it's a perfectly adequate homevid camera.

Dad Fad of the Month:
Candy Land is out, crib demolition is in-at least for Peter Baylies, Publisher of the At-Home Dad Quarterly. Earlier this year, writes Baylies, his two-and-a-half-year-old son, John, was scheduled to make the transition into a big-boy bed in order to make way for a new arrival in the family, but kept stalling on the big move, obviously hesitant to give up the comforts of his crib. "But one day I was watching him with my screwdriver, pretending to take everything apart, and an idea came to me that I knew would please both of us." The upshot: Father and son (and screwdrivers) descended upon the crib, reducing it to a neat stack of sticks. That night, John slept in his new bed for the first time.

No Danger In Vaccinations
Do routine childhood vaccinations put your kids at a higher risk for Attention Deficit Disorder? Ignore the alarms, says Paul Offit, M.D., chief of infectious diseases at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and a renowned virology and immunology expert. "There's no evidence that vaccinations have anything to do with the increasing incidence of ADD or its cousin ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)," says Offit. "No one knows why these conditions are on the rise or what causes them, but experts suspect genetics is at least partly responsible. In any case, there's no reason to believe that vaccines are responsible."
