Dad's in Charge. Yes, the House Will Stay Standing

Next week, daddy’s in charge, as my wife heads out on a business trip. According to portrayals of dads in many recent commercials, TV shows, and movies, I won’t be able to handle the job of caring for my own son while my wife is out of town.

There have been huge and substantial shifts in the roles of fathers and the acceptance of dads playing an ever increasing role in the daily lives of their kids. But all too often dads are still the butt of the joke and portrayed as inept and unable to care for their own kids.

I’m proud to say that is not me, and probably not your spouse either.
