DOVE® MEN+CARE® Real Dad Moments with James and James

Real Dad Moments

The other day I was going through the photos on my husband’s computer looking for some stuff for the blog and I came across of file filled with random poses James (father) and James (son) have made of themselves throughout the years.  It was really cute and it made me realize how lucky our son is to have him as his dad. Looking back I should have known since the day our son was born how invested my husband was to being a great dad and father.  While I remained in surgery my husband sat holding his son in recovery.  He wanted to be the first to feed him and the first to change his diaper.  He had absolutely no experience with children, let alone babies, but he was there and he was committed.

Dove Men+Care conducted a study where they polled 1,000 dads and their findings are not surprising to me at all.  There is clearly a disconnect between how dads see themselves and how the media portrays them.  It is my opinion that for the most part the media has never really been fair to the role men play in their children’s lives.  Here are some of the stats from their research:

  • Three quarters of dads say they are responsible for their child’s emotional well-being, while only 20% of dads see this role reflected in media
  • Only 13% of dads believe the media portrays fathers as responsible for childcare
  • 3 out of 5 dads say the media portrays them negatively (61%)
  • Nearly all dads (97%) say they are involved in their child(ren)’s life and 7 in 10 see themselves as highly involved
  • An overwhelming majority of dads (94%) prioritize their families over their careers

Because Dove Men+Care understands the role of dad they wanted to share authentic moments of care shared between REAL dads and their children and they created the #RealDadMoments video below just in time for Father’s Day.

James and James spend a lot of time together doing healthy things such as kayaking, biking and swimming.  My son really looks up to his dad and he pays attention to the things he likes and collects and even the products he uses.  I’ve mentioned before that for James isn’t your normal kid and when it come to making him happy it can often be as simple as bringing him home the same knife his dad has (they collect knives together), the same hat, or the same body wash.  I guess even 10 year old boys know that Dove Men+Care cares and it shows in their full line of grooming products specifically designed to care for men’s skin, face, hair and underarms.  My hubby cares about our son and Dove Men+Care cares for him!
