The Daddy Wars

Many people have seen and commented on a photograph of a dad caring for his two kids. In the photo, he holds his younger child in a carrier while doing his daughter’s hair. The strong reactions to this photo surprised people and generated much discussion about the roles of fathers.

I joined that discussion via my local news station. In a segment titled, “Daddy Wars,” John Pacini, co-founder of Dad 2.0 & XY Media, Kelley Nettles of and I talked about what fatherhood looks like in today’s society.

Stay Strong,
