When leading Girl Scouts and planning Mother Daughter events, I was sickened by the number of mothers who said Halloween you can’t scare me i drive a school bus shirt they couldn’t go unless they found a sitter for the other kids. Married to childrens’ fathers. Fathers at home but would not be left alone with their own kids. This was not an isolated problem.
Halloween you can’t scare me i drive a school bus shirt
Many mothers would not even leave the kids with Dad for a 1 hour meeting. Perhaps it was an excuse, but they had their girls in scouting for empowerment? No, I was a babysitter so mom could get a break I used to get that all the time when my kids were little back in the 90’s oh stuck home baby sitting you must be whipped. I would say I am not baby sitting I am taking care of my kids like any good father would do. Even women would say that Dad was baby sitting when my wife belonged to a club that would meet once a month and had a yearly craft show that would take her away for most nights and all weekend of the show.
The other women would say how nice it is that he stays home to baby sit my wife would say he’s not baby sitting he’s doing what any good father would do for his kids. It was never hard to stay home with the kids it wasn’t some horrible job to me If it was Halloween you can’t scare me i drive a school bus shirt I wouldn’t have had kids. Both my wife and I were in this together raising our 3 kids it wasn’t hard. The only way to change this perception is for women to stop saying,
