At the recent M3 Summit, a group of Dad Bloggers, including Eric Elkins (The Dating Dad), Paul Banas (GreadDad), CC Chapman (Digital Dads), Clay Nichols (DadLabs), Kevin Metzger (The DADvocate), and Donny Claxton (DaddyClaxton).
They talk about the fact that just like Moms, Dads are online sharing experiences, advice, tips, or just a place to have conversations and get to know each other. These Dads are helping define a new generation of what it means to be a Dad.
One of the key points is that Dads today are really active in their kids’ lives, whether they’re working from home, being a full-time “Stay at Home Dad”, or just being an active Dad before or after their full-time job.
CNN also adds a few stats about US Dads:
- 42% are Sole Provider
- 63% Work more than 40 hours/week
- 9% have taken on 2nd job
