Dads Are Important, Too

Dads get the shaft. Especially in the media. Remember all those P&G commercials during the Olympics that said, "Thanks Mom." Ann Romney spent a good portion of her speech talking about how women and moms and daughters have made this country what it is, that moms work hard. I'm not saying they don't. But where's the love for dads?

I have a very strong belief that dads are just as important to their kids as moms are. Dads love, too. Being a mom is hard, but that also means being a dad is hard. But the rewards are the same for both. If we keep treating moms like they're these mythical creatures that nearly every mom feels like they can't live up to, and keep giving dads the shaft, we'll only continue to feed into the disparity.

Moms AND dads are important.
