Just a quick one today, since on this fine Spring day we celebrate Fathers Day.
It goes without saying I love the two Dad's in my life, my own father and my husband, Julian. So today is the perfect time for me to rant about the thing that annoys me most about how fathers, in general, are portrayed.
If you have been reading along with me, you know I love to have a bit of fun, I also love sitcoms, except for ones about family. It annoys me so much that fathers are usually portrayed as dumb and the long suffering wife/mother is always there to fix everything. The kids are always rolling their eyes at whatever Dad has done in that episode.
Not only do I have these two awesome Dad's in my life, I have three sons, what does this stereotype teach them about being men?
Where in these "sitcoms" does it show respect to the father, who goes out and supports his family, tries to spend time with his kids, loves his wife?
Alright, rant over, and a special message to all the Dads out there from my favorite sitcom ever
Thank you Perry much!
