Making Room for Dad

There’s an interesting conversation going on over at the “Motherlode” Parenting blog at the New York Times website.  The opening salvo in the post, “Making Room for Dad,” reads:

Men should want to be more involved fathers, yes. But women have to let them.

A number of the people commenting on the blog refer to the phenomenon of Moms complaining about Dads not doing enough parenting, but then micro-managing them (and thereby discouraging them)  if they do get involved.  Others, however, seem to feel that men are simply incompetent.

What’s my perspective?  See comment #21.
