Not just moms, even dads are shamed, reveals survey

Study: Most fathers experience 'dad shaming'

The new data comes from the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health.

According to a new survey, almost half of American dads said they were criticised for their parenting styles.

For over a quarter of fathers polled, criticism made them feel less confident as a parent and 1 in 5 say it discourages them from being more involved in parenting.

Forty-four percent of the time, the criticism came from a family member, often the other child-rearing partner, the findings showed.

"One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters".

"With changing lifestyles, fathers are concerned about their health but feel they are not able to do enough about it", the survey said.

Almost a quarter of fathers polled (23 percent) have also felt excluded from communication about their child's activities. My dad, who ran an hour daily, admitted that he was never the man who slowed down, and he knew that this was a blessing in disguise because it forced him to take the time to rest and relax. "When this occurs, minor differences in parenting style can cause conflict over the "best" way to parent".

Fathers tended to rate themselves rather highly, with nine in every 10 saying that they thought dads typically did a good job at parenting.

And in his success, my father remained steady - not letting the temptation of his new world get in the way of what he wanted in life - a happy family with a attractive wife (Mom, I know you are reading this) and happy children.

"My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me". Fathers dedicate their lives for the well-being of their children.

There was a lot of storytelling and messages about the importance of dads going around at the symposium.

"Cultural norms, family dynamics and prior experience with his own father can also shape a dad's parenting style and influence the expectations of others", she added. The role of fathers in our society and our individual lives needs no introduction.
