USA Today on Changing Roles

I have maintained this blog for going on 7 years. I've made somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,200 posts. That's a lot of thoughts on fatherhood. And I can tell you that I have never seen the interest level of journalists in fathers doing kid stuff this high outside of the week before Father's Day. Never.

Unfortunately, the economy-fueled stories on changing family roles haven't been all that superb. Not that they've been bad, just not particularly ground-breaking. Last week's USA Today is a good example.

Dads pitching in more at home is not something that has suddenly sprung from the current recession. The last decade or two have brought massive changes in the way family life is constructed for millions of dads. Maybe the economy is accelerating those trends. But the stock market crash didn't light the fire.
