Undoubtedly the greatest change in western society, has been the role of mothers. Going back to Grandma's time when a child, women having careers was not the norm particularly families below the Middle class. However a revolution in the role of fathers has happened too.
Dads in the past were not expected or encouraged to become involved in the emotional development of their children, they were the primary bread winners and were expected to take on most of the tasks now shared in modern parenting.
Times are changing, most dads nowadays are not the bygone age bullying beer swillers who arrive home penniless and drunk on pay day - but happy hard working home loving blokes who enjoy the comforts of their homes and family. Occasionally roles are switched and husbands then need to know how to deal with the wife's role if suddenly he becomes unemployed and Mum has to work out side the home on long periods away from family. Most families are deeply connected nowadays , I know mine is when it seems hardly a day passes when we send birthday greetings worldwide. Yesterday I received my first fathers day card, it was from a lady who was involved with my eldest son years back but still visits us.
On Sunday, Its every body's chance to celebrate not just their own fathers but the continuation of a welcome new era in parenting.
Remember. Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
MS Rinehart's advice a bit Rich.
Mining Billionaire Gina Rinehart has said the key to becoming a millionaire is working hard and socialising less.
"If you are jealous of those with more money, don't just sit there and complain, do something to make more money yourselves - spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising and more time working" she says in a paper on The Institute of Public Affairs website...... But it would seem MS Rinehart's advice left out the bit about "Daddy being a major cattle station owner and the biggest mining magnate in Australia.
Vest Say's. Think it more satisfactory to live richly than die rich.

Today in History.
Septmber 3 , 1939. The start of the 2nd World War. But not if you were American. You were far too busy enjoying life.
