Interesting Thingamababy Post

I follow this dad-blog and thought yesterday's post was pretty interesting - The role of fathers in American society.

As a sociologist by training, I've read plenty of articles and books about the de-valuing of carework in our society (see daycare rant here), but I've never considered the possibility that it's a de-valuing of children in our society. Just a different perspective, especially this sentence: "Sorry to go overboard, but when looking at America in the big picture, I don’t think families are valued much except by other families that contain non-adult children."
