And what about the dads?
Thank you, Tracy, for beating us to the punch, for we were going start a conversation along the same vein.
In amongst all the angst of the "Do you stay at home? Why or why not?" question, there was not a lot of talk about dads. Sorry for the fact that this question assumes a dad is present as I know it won't relate to everyone, but what is the role of dad in your home? How do you divide work? How do you think dad and mom relationships differ with the children? How do the dads feel about their role and would they want it to be different? Do moms want dad's role to be different? Very curious about this....
We know that the vast majority of people who read this site are, in fact, mamas. We also know, however, that there are quite a few papas out there that read regularly and comment oh-so very infrequently. We appreciate you papas treading lightly and allowing the conversation to ensue. But, we are also interested in bringing papas deeper into the fold. We would love to hear from you, too. We realize that not every family has a papa. Still, we want to ask mamas and papas alike: What is papa's role in your household? What would you like to see different? What would you never change?
