Not having children, I may not have any right to comment on this story Mad at Dad, written by Martha Brockenbrough. In two of my LTRs, one 10 yr. and the other 8 yr., children were an intimate part of our daily life.
In the latter case, my partner had joint custody and his children lived with us part-time. He was a great father, often at the expense of our relationship, I might add.
I’m speechless over the anger boiling, raging at men (fathers) in this article. One of these men will surely die in his sleep.
I do criticize Brockenbrough for not including any of the recent reserch on men’s contribution to both housework and rearing children. I will retrieve, but my recollection is that when on the job hours are combined with housework and child-rearing, near parity has been achieved.
