Father he is not only an assistant, ad hoc support, a last resort, someone extra. He is a dad. The person responsible for taking care of the offspring. Same as me. Is he a hero about this? Maybe he should feel sorry for him because he does more than men used to do before?
Second mother? No, first father
"The Lord is such a second mother" - once heard my husband from a sixty-year-old neighbor, when he took the child for a walk almost immediately after work. He smiled and said, "I'd rather be the first dad than the second mom."
Is a father who is "getting involved" more than just a dad? Does he deserve the title of "above average"?
The image of the father "softens". It's a fact. In big cities, no one is surprised by men with a pram, daddies with toddlers on bicycles, gentlemen on the playground. Typical in the media is a picture of a "macho" hugging "sweet newborn" or a muscular gentleman combing the hair of a little girl. There are many ways to try to imprint the role of men in raising children, making it a standard. Practice shows, however, that "what a mother is a mother", that "mother is only one" "- sentences are spoken to emphasize the unchallenged role of" first parent ".
That is why the neighbor mentioned above did not say that "you are a supertata." It is not enough. "Second Mom" that sounds proud.
It is difficult to fight windmills. This is how I perceive the stereotypes very well established in our society that some environments are trying to end with.
Unfortunately, the corset has not been completely untied yet, and we are far from burning it. This can be seen in numbers, statistics and simply on the street: it is women who usually look after children, it is their responsibility to raise them, and partnership in a relationship is fiction in many homes.
