A man says it’s not cool for Dad’s to be called a “babysitter” when they take care of the kids when mom’s away.
His wife went away for work and he posted a photo and a lengthy Facebook message with the long list of tasks his wife wouldn’t be home to do.
They included, cooking for the kids, getting them to school on time, mediating conflicts with their siblings, and helping his older daughters with their feminine concerns, etc.
He wrote, “Who’s going to do all that stuff while their wife is away? Me. That’s who. Because I'm not the babysitter. I'm not just their playmate. I'm their dad. And looking after them and guiding them and caring for them is my responsibility. And I love it with all of its challenges. No the house will not fall apart or be trashed and the kids will not be ruined because dad is in charge. And no, I don't deserve anyone's special praise and adoration because ‘Wow! This dad can look after his own kids.’ I'm just doing what every parent should do, and what moms do every day without praise or adoration. It is enough that the mother of our children and I communicate our appreciation to each other for all the things we do for our family.”
