DADS and STAY HOME DADS: Some Myths and Misconceptions

  1. Men can't multi-task.
  2. Men don't know how to look after a baby.
  3. A mother's love is always best; small children need their mothers with them more than their fathers.
  4. Men don't hear a baby crying at night.
  5. Stay home dads are lucky because they get to play at home with the kids all day.
  6. If you see a man out and about with kids on a weekday, it means he's babysitting.
  7. Dads are no good at shopping for kids clothes.
  8. Working Mums have to struggle with work-life balanca, but Working Dads don't.
  9. Men can't breastfeed.

I believe that most of the above are actually only 'practice issues' more than anything else (well, take the 9th out of the list of course). What do you think?
