These Touching Moments Show the Importance of Fathers

Fatherhood is a rewarding and difficult undertaking too often overlooked by popular culture. For fathers, the responsibilities of support, love, and protection are just as important as they are to mothers, but societal norms attempt to put those roles solely on the mother in the name of “manliness”. But whether you’re a dad yourself or you simply had a great one in your life, you know there’s nothing un-manly about being a caring and supportive father. The video below, created by Dove Men+Care, contains some of those little fatherhood moments that show how amazing all dads are. “Three quarters of dads say they are responsible for their child’s emotional well-being, while only 20% of dads see this role reflected in media. It’s time to acknowledge the caring moments of fatherhood that often go overlooked.”
