It’s no secret that gender stereotypes are still prevalent in our society, and nowhere is this more evident than in the way we talk to fathers versus mothers. While mothers are often assumed to be the primary caregivers, fathers are often seen as secondary, and their involvement in parenting can be downplayed or even overlooked entirely. As a result, there are many things that people say to dads that they would never say to moms.
You’re Such a Cool Dad!
I mean, I did wear a backwards cap and play video games with my kids, so I guess I’m basically a celebrity now.
Oh, I See You’re Giving Mom a Break Today!
Yep, she’s off having a spa day while I struggle to keep the kids alive. Who’s the real winner here?
Is Your Wife Okay With You Doing All the Housework?
Oh yeah, she’s thrilled that I’ve finally learned how to use a vacuum. It’s like a whole new world of chores has opened up to me.
