So, yes, today is Thursday and today I need to throw a Tantrum….. but this one is a little bit different than usual. I was watching a news show and there was this one ‘plip’ about this dad who was writing a blog and was talking about which of his two sons he enjoyed more. Well, the word was ‘liked’ more. He stated that since he had more in common with one son, that he liked doing things with the one son over the other. He also went on to say that he loves and enjoys both sons, but there is just more in common with this one. (you can read the NEWS article here if you would like – http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/09/canadian-father-blasted-for-liking-one-son-more-than-the-other/).
Now, I think the worst part of all this is that we are missing the BIGGER picture. He (if you read a little in his blog) is always going places, doing things and is a VERY active dad. He is activly involved in BOTH his boys lives and that the one that he doesn’t do as much with is also the YOUNGER one (age 2). So, the bigger picture…… this is an ACTIVE DAD! That should be more of the point than a comment about who he likes to do things with more.
I have to say that I favor my daughter over my son when we go shopping for cloths (although now she doen’t like to have me there at all). But if you want to get a GREAT toy gun there is no one better than my son to shop with. I love all my kids, I often like one more than the other, but I could NOT love any of them less than the other. I am sure that we have all had moments where we don’t even like our children anymore – love them, ALWAYS, but like what they did…. not so much!
I am proud of the children I am raising and only wish I could be even MORE active in their lives! Isn’t that the point? Can’t we let this one ‘maybe misunderstood’ and ‘blow way out of control’ comment go and be thankful he has kids and he is actively in their lives?
This is him, and here is his blog – http://blogs.babble.com/kid-scoop/author/dadcamp/
