Daddy Shaming – Facing Judgment for our Parenting | E23

It’s no doubt that we live in a judgmental society. It’s common when parenting- looking at what others do and comparing it to what we think we’d do. Many moms may feel like they face it often. It’s called mommy shaming, but what about dads? It turns out daddy shaming exists too. This we we talk with Sarah Clark from the University of Michigan about her study on it. She found it’s pretty common and it isn’t helping dads – in fact it’s pushing many away. And, the most common offender often lives in the same house.

Thank you for joining me for the Positively Dad journey! My name is James Shaw and I'm a husband and father. I live in the Tampa Bay area with my wife, Terri and our young daughter, Naomi. The goal with Positively Dad for us to think, learn and grow. It's easy to get caught up in the day to day and miss opportunities to become amazing fathers. I trust that the conversations we have on Positively Dad will help you see that fatherhood is truly a journey and that we are better together than figuring it all out on our own.
