Dads now spend 3 times as much time with their kids than previous generations 👏👏👏 – Motherly

This is a very good thing !

Modern dads take parenting seriously, spending three times as much time with their children as men did two generations ago, and they’re doing a lot more during that time.Back in 1982, a whopping 43% of fathers admitted they’d never changed a diaper. Today, that number is down to about 3%, and that’s great, because research indicates that when dads dress, diaper and bathe their babies, the father-child relationship grows stronger as the child grows.Today’s dads get that. Research shows millennial dads have more egalitarian beliefs about childcare, and are striving to see more even distribution of parenting duties in their own households. The numbers prove things aren’t perfect—many dads admit things aren’t yet even in their homes (mom still does more)— but one recent study found modern dads devote 30 more minutes to daily household chores than their own fathers did, and they’re spending more time with their kids than previous generations.That’s huge. Engaged fathers create all kind of benefits for kids. They’re teaching our daughters that they are not less than boys and teaching our sons that dishes and laundry aren’t “women’s work” (those things are just a part of being an adult).This trend of dads doing more at home isn’t just good for our kids, it’s good for our marriages (which is also good for our kids). Research indicates that when 60% or more of the parenting responsibilities fall to mom, the relationship between mom and dad suffers. But, when dads do their part around the house, couples have stronger relationships. Simple things, like dad loading the dishwasher, are so powerful.

Here’s to All the Good Dads Out There: We See You | CafeMom

I cannot tell you how my heart sings to witness

the Dad whose hands on, nurturing natures

support his partner , his child, himself and his

community . It’s a blessing to witness so much

of it in my locality ; certainly noting the detached

uncle dad , that’s catalyst in transforming to sacred

attached relationships .

Denied too many, the lack of nature and nurture

will show up ..

Congratulations all you Dad’s who participate

heart and soul with your wee ones .. I stand

for and with you, proudly 😘💯

An open letter to all of the fathers out there who fiercely love they’re kids — thank you.
