Dads Worth Only Half of What Moms Worth

That’s right. I said it. And if you don’t believe me, just ask your wife. She’ll tell you. So will a new survey that’s out, one which compares the fair market value of moms vs. dads. I’m not sure I’m buying it, though and I explain why in a recent piece I wrote for TLC’s blog, Parentables. It was my second post I’ve written for them and I’m fired up to be writing for them. Look for three, maybe four efforts a week from me there. Anyway, click if you wanna read either of my first two posts:

Why Summer’s Overrated. Sorta.
Dad’s: You’re Only Worth Half What Mom’s Worth. Happy Father’s Day.

But that’s not all. NO, it’s not. I’ve also got a new piece up at GoodMenProject that’s of the Father’s Day variety. So if you’re wondering what your (or your husband’s) father’s day gift says about you (or him), you might wanna click the following:

What Your Father’s Day Gift Says About You

Or, you could just read the breaking news on Congressman Weiner. Hey, that gives me a little idea…

About john cave osborne

John Cave Osborne is a writer whose work has appeared on such sites as DisneyBaby, Babble, YahooShine, TLC and the Huffington Post. He was also referenced by Jezebel one time, but he’s pretty sure they were making fun of him. He and his wife, Caroline, live with their five children and spastic dog in Knoxville, TN. Nothing annoys him more than joke-heavy bios written in the third person, with the possible exception of Corey Feldman.

    I was pissed when I saw the article.  The way I read it, we were given the benefit of the doubt when it came to our parenting and household skills.  Our jobs were “watching tv” and other non-involvement activities.

      @Eric— you know, it’s just one of those things… to me, the main thing it showed was that the moms who answered the survey had a little chip on their shoulder when it comes to proving their worth, what with counting so many hours. whereas the fellas seemed, well, more realistic. to me, this was more about gender difference than moms really being worth more than dads. thanks for stopping by, buddy. hope all is well and that you had a great Father’s Day!
