As I have mentioned before, I have a special place in my heart for fathers. So much so, that I am currently writing my Masters thesis on stay-at-home dads in Canada! For this Fatherhood Friday I thought I would share an interesting article that I came across while doing research. Enjoy!
For this Fatherhood Friday, I want to highlight a fabulous dad that I first saw when this video hit facebook a year or so ago:
And then I saw him on Ellen:
And now I love to check his youtube channel every once in a while. I love his message about teaching his children about music, art and community, and his girls are just adorable! Check out some of their covers!
Do you sing with your children? What values are most important to you as a parent?
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?
