Hearing from fathers on The Couch

For quite a while we’ve wanted to get an up-to-date snapshot pressures, concerns, and joys faced by fathers. Mothers tend to be very vocal and find the time to get on to The Couch, but poll results suggeted the dads were not so forthcoming.

So, on father’s day we launched a poll asking for replies just from dads. We’ve asked about role models, access to information on being a father, the nature of the role and time spent with their children, plus we’ve left some space for men to share views on highs and lows.

After just over a week 7% of members have completed the poll.

I’m hoping a few more blokes might get online and let us know about being a dad. Pass on the message to dads you know.
