The stereotype says fathers want sons so they can raise them in their own image … because that’s all they know. So what does a dad do when he has to raise daughters?
Our latest Modern Dads Podcast tackles this issue with two of our favorite dads and online voices, blogger and Philly Dads Group co-founder Jeff Bogle and “Puzzling Posts” blogger Mike Reynolds. We talk about the uphill climb our daughters still face in the 21st century and the role that we as dads can play to raise daughters and in challenging the long-held beliefs and stereotypes foisted upon women and girls. (Chicago Dads Group member Pat Jacobs recently tackled this subject in the post “How Does a Dad Raise a Daughter” which he wrote while awaiting the October birth of his daughter.)
NYC Dads Group member and podcast producer Josh Kross chimes in with why he thinks chivalry as we know it is dead … but there still might be hope.
