Fatherhood Friday

I have a special place in my heart for dads. Maybe it’s because I have a great one, and I’m pretty sure I married one too.

Because of this, I have dedicated fridays on this blog to fathers!

Today I want to share this picture that a friend sent to me from Sweden:

I love it. As someone who has worked with children and families in Canada for many years and in many different capacities, I am overly aware of how mother-centric some family services and environments can be. Not so in Sweden! As well as having some awesome family policy, Sweden is a mecca for primary caregiving dads! I love that this sign challenges some of our assumptions about gender and child care.

What are your thoughts? Would you find a sign like this in your city/country/neighbourhood?
