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.

  1. I wish to express my atcieopapirn to the writer just for rescuing me from such a instance. Just after scouting throughout the search engines and coming across things that were not beneficial, I believed my life was over. Being alive without the presence of solutions to the issues you have resolved all through the posting is a serious case, as well as those which might have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not come across the website. Your primary ability and kindness in dealing with everything was very useful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such a stuff like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for the reliable and amazing guide. I won’t think twice to propose the website to any person who should get recommendations on this problem.
