We need to stop with the parenting stereotypes
Women and mothers have dealt with their fair share of stereotypes over the years. Whether you’re a stay at home mom or a working mom or a work from home mom or an older mom, there’s a stereotype about you that is constantly reinforced through the media.
Dad’s aren’t immune to the stereotypes either.

One dad is sharing his thoughts on being an involved father after he was referred to by a stranger as a ‘child’ for playing with his kids.
