Dads in the News

Lately ABC has been airing commercials for their new sitcom, Surviving Suburbia, in which Bob Saget plays a suburban dad. The ads have focused around Saget being a completely inept buffoon as a father--hmm, seems like that's been covered on TV before, hasn't it? It seems Hollywood only sees fathers as incapble of being anything positive in a family.

One of our local news stations, however, is aware that there are good fathers out there. In response to an "Oprah" segment on at-home-dads, they did a local follow-up with a dad from my local at-home-dads' group. Good father role models are needed out there. I'm glad we can put a face to it.
