Father's Day is June 20th

Men Can is a collection of inspirational stories of how the American family is evolving. Fathers are primarily or equally sharing the caregiving responsibilities of raising children. The author tells the stories of real families, from various backgrounds, who have reversed the traditional roles of parenting. This cultural shift in men caring for children has also affected the way dads are perceived in the media, films and advertisements.

The Daddy Shift

Stay-at-home dads are a small but growing group in today's society. The Daddy Shift is a new book by Jeremy Adam Smith that talks about this changing landscape of the parenting world. Smith explores the history, pyschology, and sociology of caregiving fathers, and helps to break down stereotypes associated with men who stay at home with their children. A useful book for families with caregiving dads and men who are exploring the idea of becoming one.
