An encouraging fact is that there is an increase in Indian fathers spending time with their children, on an average 64 to 70 hours per month. More than 50% of fathers are spending more than 80 hours.
While Dads have to get more involved in every day care of their children, according to research done by Dr. Kapur’s team – 95% of fathers have changed their diaper/nappies of their child, more than 35% of fathers have cooked meals for their children.
Dr. Rakesh brought up the example of the Flipkart campaign of “Penguin Dads” and the perception of Stay at home Dads. However there are barriers that fathers face in society – in schools and even on the playground.
