There is a video going around about a company that created a false job opening that is outrageous. The reactions from the applicants is very entertaining.
About half way through it I caught on to what was going on. I smiled, thought how sweet, but then noticed a tugging in my gut. I pay very close attention to those tuggings. After some thought, I realized it was once again a message that being a parent = mom. Yes, it’s for Mother’s Day. I get that. But would that company have done the same thing for Father’s Day?
I think not.
I cannot imagine raising my boys without their father…whether we were divorced or not. I know many father’s that work so very hard to connect and be part of their children’s lives. They’re proud of their kids and a lot of times don’t get the partnership accolades of being the other parent. I understand I am going against the flow of a typical American culture.
It breaks my heart that there are fathers (and mothers) that don’t want their children. I’m astonished that there are fathers that think it’s all on the mother’s shoulders for parenting the children.
I just think that maybe some of these neglectful (selfish) father’s would rethink things if our culture highlighted the importance of their roll in their family.
