Dads Know the Darndest Things

There’s a growing movement afoot to give the seal of approval to Dad, often the forgotten part of the child rearing equation. Not only are more dads staying home with the kids (80% of layoffs in the recession have been males), but they have a unique perspective on raising kids.

Just in time for Father’s Day, Salon pays homage to the Y-chromosome in the equation. Nancy Gibbs in this week’s Time Magazine urges moms to take note. Dads are laid back and less caught up in the politics of mommyhood.

Happy Father’s Day to moms everywhere.
