Over the past half century, fatherhood has been changing all across America.
Used to be, Dad was the head of the household, the master of his domain, king of his castle. Nowadays, pop culture has turned the old man into the clueless one in the family.
You know the routine, don’t you? Mama, fully engaged in her children’s lives, looks to her hubby for support in laying down the law, but Daddy’s too absorbed in sports or television or some other “triviality” to catch on to what’s going on, so he comes across as a baboon.
