A March 2012 study by The Parenting Group revealed that 82 percent of first-time dads -- and 66 percent of all dads -- believe they've been mislabeled as breadwinners removed from parenting and domestic responsibilities. Eighty-two percent of new dads also feel they share parental duties with their partners equally.

Not only are men doing more as parents, but they are also sharing their experiences online.

“Parenting is not just a mom’s world anymore,” added Restaino. “Today’s fathers do far more than papas of the past, and many have become respected members of the online parenting community.”
