We all compare ourselves to other people. We do this even though we probably know that the comparisons aren’t meaningful. Even when we know the comparisons probably make us unhappy. Even when we know the comparisons don’t make us better, make us change, make us smarter or even make us better human beings.

For Ryan it happens when the BRW rich list comes out (probably cause of being overly ambitious) every year and he reviews it and comparing to others.

For Matty it's comparing how he is as a father compared to the perceptions around him.

For Kane it's comparing himself with his 25 year old self (and how incapable he seems these days).

Comparisons seem to be happening more and more, especially with the uptake and of Social Media. Everyone has an angle or opinion or a comment.

This week we discuss if and what we compare and how we try to take every comparison with a grain of salt.

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.
