Is this just about Dads? What is the role of Mums?

Mums are absolutely crucial and an integral part of Year of the Dad – indeed, the current CEO of Fathers Network Scotland (which is organising Year of the Dad) is a mum, as are many board members and workers. For generations mums have been a central nurturing presence in the home. We acknowledge their role and don’t want to undermine them: on the contrary, to encourage and support them as dads increasingly share this nurturing role – along with the housework – and bring their own distinctive and essential qualities to the parenting team.
