Dad bashing has become so normal and engrained in our culture that it seems to have become acceptable. And it has to stop. Is it any wonder that men still don’t get the same parental leave choices as women when society views us this way?
I’ve been on the end of some comments assuming I was only with our kids because mom was out. Even been questioned if the kids would survive a weekend with dad.
I’m sure it was in jest, but seriously this is how we keep teaching kids that dad is an idiot.
Also shows itself as People dawn over me for helping another family out tying skates at the rink because they need to drop a kid off and then parent needs to leave before the other one can get there to tie skates.
My wife does the same thing some days and has never heard a thing about it. I have some comment about how nice I am almost every time.
