Mother’s Day this weekend. That’s a good day to talk about dads.

The Fatherhood Institute highlighted we way we look at dads recently. The debate raging on their Facebook page followed a story on the Telegraph website, Why are men on TV always such fools?

The images and story speak for themselves. Read my entry at The Fathers.

I was subsequently invited on Men’s Hour on BBC Radio 5 Live to discuss the practicalities of shared parenting and later penned a piece for the Telegraph Men website – Are single dads more attractive than other men.

The coverage had a positive reaction on Twitter, including:




What are your experiences of fatherhood and shared parenting? And did I represent the issues fairly in these posts?
