  1. As a full-time single dad, I always like to see more depictions of dads as parents rather than just breadwinners. Men can feel just as confined by gender roles as women (even though, on the whole, men get preferential treatment). My kids’ school always addresses things to my ex-wife, who comes by once every few months to see the kids, and most parenting groups are really “mom” groups.

  2. I love to see these dads being actively involved with their kids. Keep it up dads. The generation you are raising will be much more confident and secure because they will know they are loved and cherished by both mom and dad. I love it.
