I’ve been occasionally asked to create videos mocking dads.
Though I realize that making dads look like incompetent, childish idiots is pretty popular on the internet (and the media in general) I will never do it and here’s why…
1. For the same reason I wouldn’t mock moms. I’m rooting for all parents.
2. Because I don’t think mocking people will make them step-up and do a better job. It will only cause them to do even less. (As I’ve said before: Feeling like a loser has never helped anyone thrive in life.)
3. I have sons who might someday decide to be dads, and I refuse to create any content that would make my boys think that men are less capable than women of being great parents or homemakers.
No parent is perfect.
That goes for both moms and dads.
And if men talked about moms the way women talk about dads, it would be considered completely unacceptable.
So let’s make it unacceptable to label an entire gender as inadequate.
And dads, please know that you matter!!
