Changing The Father Stereotype

YES. I've been reading and noticing this for awhile. You know, you turn on the television and all you see is an idiot father and the beautiful know-it-all wife. As a woman, trust me, sometimes it feels that way. But, to constantly portray a man in the same stereotype is unfair and damaging to young boys watching. I'm pleased to see men revolting. Men, it's about time.

"Across the country, more and more are fed up -- and rising up against the stereotype of the inept, clueless father. 'We're not the Peter Griffin or the Homer Simpson that we're often portrayed as,' said Kevin Metzger, who runs the Dadvocate blog."
