This is a public service announcement. I want to let you know about a new series I am about to launch on Dadbloguk looking at work life balance.
Just the other day I was given the opportunity to try and answer an impossible question. The question was thus: Just how are men and masculinity represented in the media and how does this reinforce stereotypes or, indeed, reflect positively on men.
“It’s not fair daddy,” said Helen. “Only two girls got to join and the other 12 are boys.”
As my kids get older, I am beginning to see first-hand just how important it is for a father to be heavily involved with his kids from the day they’re born. I feel like I have reached a point where I can look over my shoulder at my experiences of the Early Years system and think: “Yeah, it’s more important than I ever appreciated.”
