Is the modern man a hunter or a gentleman? A manual labourer or a technophile? In today's culture the modern man usually is a mix of many things. The modern man must be adaptable.

Gender roles are changing and blending together and the stay-at-home dad or part time dad population is growing.

More fathers than ever are participating in their children's nurturing and upbringing.

The thing is that fathers and mothers come into the parenting process differently though. For the mother, the connection is biological. It's a part of her.

Fathering, on the other hand, is less so. Therefore, it's important for men to learn the skills they need to be a good dad. For some guys it's more intuitive, like kicking a football, but most guys need a coach or some direction.

DADDY EATS LAST discusses what it means to be a man and a father in modern society and all the issues that comes with both.
