    Even in this thread I have read so many time about the importance of mothers - yet fathers are not even mentioned.

    It's time to break the cycle, praise fatherhood and maybe we will get a balance parenthood as a result
    My husband tells me being a mum is the hardest job he admits I do know way more about our son and his needs then he does.

    My husband is the best father he has been involved from day 1 in every way he can but even he admits he couldn't do what I do.

    I'm confused as to what being a feminist has to do with this issue?

    Feminism is about believing in gender equality. As such I believe being a father is as tough as being a dad.

    I honestly can't see the difference after breastfeeding days are over. And even then, my baby is still BF and I don't think my husband's role is any easier than mine.

    This is a parenting forum though, and interestingly there's hardly any men around. Kind of says it all really.

    I think that's a lot more about preferred communication methods and how they choose to spend their time on the internet rather than as a sign they are not as involved as parents. In fact I wish I spent less time on the net like my husband does!

    It's also a pregnancy forum.

    ETA Catherine Deveny is also mainly known as a writer and journo, she's not a comedian. She may *think* she's funny sometimes but it's not her job
    She is actually a comedian. Her own website declares her a writer, comedian and social commentator. She's written and performed stand up for years. Quite funny, too, at times

I think of all my friends over all my life, the one who ended up with issues, and I can pretty much say all of the ones I can think of had issues with one, or the other of their parents.

    So yes - the most important.
    Yes, I agree with this

    This is true. men are less likely for a variety of reasons to join a parenting forum and express their feelings about parenting.

    There are oodles of fantastic dads out there. But I guess as with most things, the losers ruin it for the good ones.

    My husband is a fantastic dad, and husband. But there is a clear divide in my household tonight - dh sick, been asleep since midday whilst I did everything. Now im sick, yet I'll still have to get up and feed DS3 and deal with DS2's night terror and then do school and normal day stuff tomorrow...

    I love being a SAHM but jesus I wish I could have a sick day when im vomiting non stop.
