The Ins and Outs of Fatherhood

(May 2012) – As with everything, fatherhood has seen some major changes over the years. The role dad once played has evolved and the place he now takes in the family is much different than it was even 10 years ago. Amidst it all, he has kept us laughing and smiling, he’s always had the perfect bit of advice when we needed it, and he continues to do it all without ever asking for a bit of thanks.

While maintaining the qualities we love, dads today are taking on the role with a mixture of new challenges and advantages. Here is a very brief look at some of these evolutions.
