Single Dads??

How many do you know?

I know they aren't as common as single moms, but there are some out there believe it or not.

I was sitting on the couch the other night crafting away for some items for Honie's Little Shop. On came a commercial talking about the holiday season and those in need.

Now of course, it isn't just because its the holiday season people are in need. The economy isn't what it used to be.

Anyway, it was talking about all those that could use some help. You know like the elderly, foster parents and  single moms. Continued on stating that if you wanted to help to call, or stop by XYZ address.

My first thought was, WHAT ABOUT SINGLE DADS??! I mean really, why do they not get mentioned?? Do they not need help just like single moms??

I don't know why but that stuck with me. I mentioned it to my husband and he was quite surprised as well.

How do you feel about it? Should single dads get credit for what they do like single moms do? Should they be included when commercials are talking about specific "types" needing help this holiday season?

  1. Of course single dad's need help! My dad was one for many years of 4 young girls. It was not easy for him.

    This is like saying that dad's aren't affected when it comes to their children having disabilities. You always hear about the stressors that mother's of children with disabilities face, and the research is geared toward mothers. its disgusting if you ask me.

    Single dads everywhere need a shout out!
