Prior to Father’s Day, some of the commentary consisted of the usual denigration of fathers that’s long been a regular part of the day that’s supposed to honor them. But most of the media and pop cultural treatment of fathers was positive.
This Pew Research article was nothing more than a recital of the current data on fathers and their effort to do both paid work and childcare. I suppose that, if those data had cast doubt on fathers’ commitment, competency, etc., then the article would have reflected same. But, since the information is essentially uniformly good news, the article joined many others that reflect positively on dads.
