Monday (May 25th) on “The Parenting Show,” we talked about dads and how much they get left out of the parenting conversation. I am guilty of saying “moms” when I mean “parents.” Yet, I also believe that moms and dads are NOT the same! If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know I tweeted about an ad campaign for an infant car seat system that is definitely targeting men. Come on, doesn’t that look like a car ad? And Tiger Woods owns one!
Today in the Star there is an article saying “hands-on dads” are better at handling the stress of the current economic crisis, at least according to the author of the about-to-be-released book, “Daddy Shifting.” I am looking forward to reading this book about the changing role of fatherhood. Apparently the author, Jeremy Adam Smith, thinks being a stay-at-home dad can be for a good thing for dads, not just because it’s forced upon the family due to unemployment or from wanting to help out Mom, but because it’s actually fulfilling. Imagine that!
