Superdads Response

Our discussion on Wednesday about the role of ?s, especially those who occupy unconventional positions like those in our three ??,

Highlighted how much of the onus of childrearing falls on ?s. We read and discussed that, even as societal expectations for ?s’ involvement

Change, the bulk of domestic labor still lies with ?s. It was interesting to consider that when ?s are in public with their children people

See it as going above and beyond, but when ?s do the same they are received either neutrally or as somehow not doing enough. Even as trends

Of ?s’ distance change I wonder if expectations transform too, or if their involvement will always be seen as exceeding what is required.
