Chaunie Brusie, a freelance writer and a mom of four, presents us with 5 comical situations that underline the differences between dads and moms when they go out in public. Published by Babble, a parenting blog, the illustrations show biased public opinions when it comes to the roles of parents. For example, while dads can get away with scrolling through their Facebook feed while their kids are at the park, moms are under the magnifying glass pretty much all the time.

And when you answer "They're with their Dad." you get "Aww isn't that good of him to babysit." He's not their babysitter, he's their Father! *sigh*

Apparently, mom parents and dad "babyshit". Their FATHER is watching the kids. You know, because it's THEIR FATHER. Sigh.

I get asked that all the time at work. "So, who's watching your daughter?" with a very accusing tone and look on their faces.

This picture accompained by these comments reminded me of a Latin Lover film scene where a woman was asked who was looking after her other kid (a baby, she brought the older kod with her) while she's away, and she said completely naturally "with his fathers", because shw had two husbands. Like, she divorced and remarried, but they're all apparently still in a friendly relationship.

A friend of mine was asked this in a super market once when she was out shopping alone. She just said "they're at home being watched over by our dog. They should be alright for the next 2 hours or so. They know now after the last time I left them alone not to stick sharp things into plug sockets or play with knives so I think they will be alright." When she got home her husband who had really been the one looking after the kids told her that while she was away a couple of police officers had come around to check up on the kids. The woman she had been talking to had believed her and called them.

Is it really her business who's watching my kids?

I guess it's the way humans grow up. How they are taught and the stuff they watch on tv or computer. Another one is that "Where is the dad", left as soon as he found out. Feel bad for single mothers but respect how strong they can be.

Point one...the mom probably talks about her kids a lot. Point two...the dad probably doesn't so much. Makes sense to me!

All the time! I don't even have kids and I've had hairdressers, nail people, and sales people at the furniture store ask "who's watching the kids."

Dad Vs Mom Going Out

Is it any wonder, when society brands men as hapless dads, that a dad seen being a 'dad' is something away from what is expected of them? Look at all the father figures on TV: from Daddy Pig, to three men and a baby, to Fred Flintstone, we grew up thinking dads are useless. It's true, men don't have the pressure of having to be seen as being a 'good mum' but where is that pressure coming from? And does it really matter what other people think of your parenting skills? Be the best you can be and stuff anyone else. I'm a dad for my daughter, and the only person whose opinion matters is hers.

This one depends on the friends. I tend to ask about the kids first regardless of the sex, and then go on to random stuff.
