Whew…no hate mail on ol’ Number 5, so I guess I will keep going.

Number 4 : Praise for being competent

I get it — there is a reason the word “deadbeat dad” exists — and I know it’s not simply to be an example of alliteration. However, I don’t think this means that every time a dad (me) does something competent that he (me) should be praised for it. On the flip side, I don’t think I need all the criticism when I don’t do things the way “mom would have done it”.

Moms and dads might take different approaches to the same task, but it doesn’t make one or the other wrong — it just makes them different. No better – No worse (in most cases).
