We all get to have a big #ParentFail moment in our lives, some are bigger than others, some more serious than others, some you just have to laugh about.
The Old Spice Creepy Mom commercial now has a co-star: creepy dad. Moms and Dads duke it out over the pain and pleasure of seeing their boy become a man in this great commercial that highlights how moms and dads do it differently.
It’s not unique when parents play with their kids. Parents love their kids, they love to have fun. It’s the norm, it’s not an outlier, so stop treating dads who have fun with their daughters like they’re a circus side show, or patting them on the head with “you’re such a good dad.” We’re parents. We love our kids. There’s nothing outlying about that.
Meet Zach Rosenberg, one of the dads I know, and the only dad who likes to wear a pink bathrobe. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. My son loves pink too.
Dad stereotypes are terrible. They are simple lowest common denominator stuff that do nothing to forward the conversation and promote positivity. It would be so easy to change.
The new #ThankYouMom commercial from P&G proves that we still have work to do when it comes to media portrayals of dads.
It’s a long leap in logic to take racism and apply it to the treatment of dads by moms in a Facebook group, but hear me out. Marginalization for the colour of your skin, or your gender is still marginalization. Moms are still marginalizing dads for the simple reason that they are men. We’re all parents, and it’s time moms got it.
