We need to stop Dad Bashing!

 

What would happen if we loved our husbands?  We as a society need to stop “Dad bashing”!  I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve gone to the grocery store, or to Walmart, and overheard conversations between other women about their husbands.  Lets be realistic, men are not perfect, neither are us women! They have their own way of doing things, they have their own agenda, they have their own priorities, and sometimes…just sometimes…we don’t see eye to eye. I’d like to interject into these conversations and say “Hey…is that really the way you see you husband?  Is that how you want your children and others to see your husband?”  But I don’t…I walk away and I think to myself “am I any different?”, I’d like to think that I am.

My husband is not a perfect man…and I’m far from perfect myself, but what gets my goat is the way husbands and fathers are portrayed in the media…Homer Simpson (the Simpsons), Peter Griffin (Family Guy), Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), just to name a few.  These characters are doltish, lazy, and/or lack social and sometimes hygienic graces.  This cannot be how we see our husbands? The man who took your breath away the first time he swept you up in his arms and kissed you.  The man who waited 30 minutes for you to finish getting ready for your date and then told you how beautiful you were instead of being upset with you.
