Our world is changing and expectations we have of fathers have changed with it. Just as our roles transitioned as mothers moved into the workforce, many times we’ve focused on how difficult it is as mothers to fulfill our roles with all that we manage, but with Fathers Day around the corner I think we should talk about what the new family dynamic has meant to dads.
Today’s fathers are trying hard to lead by example. The old school “Do as I say, not as I do” was never a good parenting motto and it certainly won’t fly today. We expect a lot from Dad. We still need our fathers to be strong and decisive, but they can’t be unyielding and they have to be patient and kind. As women we’ve learned to be tough. We’ve gained power and financial freedom that our grandmothers and great grandmothers didn’t enjoy. I want to recognize fathers for what they’ve done to adapt.
So, for our diaper changing, soccer game attending, bandaid carrying Dads out there, we salute you! Your efforts to help us provide gentle nurturing as well as patience and discipline for our families have allowed us as mothers to become the strong women of today. Thank you for being a Lovin’ Dad.
