Friday Round-Up: Resources for Dads

Posted By:

 

Today’s dads are growing up in the wake of the women’s movement, and because of it, modern day fatherhood is a whole different animal compared to generations before. Dads tend to be more involved in their kids’ lives, and more and more are staying home, taking on the role of primary caretaker of their children. We at The Mother Company love all the dads in our lives. The following list should serve to help enrich and illuminate all that they are and do. — Laurel Moglen, Managing Web Editor, The Mother Company
