This article refers to a sexist attitude, saying that there is an opinion that fathers are "babysitting" their children when they are not with their mother.
So how is this reflected by the Court if the child's parents were to separate? Certainly there has been more of a shift in recent years towards "shared care" where possible, where it is recognised that it is important for the children to spend time with both parents and for the children to feel as though they have two homes.
"Aww, it's so nice of you to babysit and give mom a break." "I guess you got stuck with the kids today." "You've got a good helper here!" These are just some of the things that have been said to dads who have been looking after their children, according to testimonies on Reddit, where the topic has sparked a flurry of conversation. It began when a user shared an image of a t-shirt bearing the slogan: "Dads don't babysit, it's called parenting."
