It goes without saying that all parents need quality bonding time with their children – both fathers and mothers. But are children getting as much time with their dads as they should?
When we talk about parenting, gender stereotypes within childminding and parenthood have come a long way over the last century. In fact, fathers are nearly 7 times more involved with their children than they were 50 years ago. Mothers are not seen as the only possible caregiver, and fathers are taking a much more active role in their child’s life. But the time children spend with their fathers is still significantly less than mothers.
