 A Guest Post by Mark Winkler
   In an interview question with Mark Winkler, he has this to say about the changing roles of fathers and mothers.


Do you think fathers and mothers roles are changing in the family?

Historically the father’s role was the provider, protector, and chief disciplinarian. The mother was seen and expected to be the caretaker of the home and children. For many years, these roles were concrete. Little deviation occurred. Recently, the lines separating these roles have faded and parental responsibilities have started to blend and change. The number of stay-at-home Dads has risen, and mothers, for years now, have greatly populated work and professional spaces. Unfortunately, women’s overall pay has not yet equaled their male counterparts.

Increasingly, fathers are starting to provide their children with emotional care and support. Years past, this would have most often not happened. However, as men start to break free from their “man box” self and societal imposed emotional prison, they are offering more emotional support to their loved ones. These changing parental roles have allowed children to start seeing the world as less restrictive and more inclusive.




Meet the Author:

Over the years, Mark Winkler has continuously moved towards his goal of helping create a better world by motivating others. His passionate advocacy for families and children eventually led to the co-founding of Manhood Camp, which was established to provide life-skills programs and community engagement opportunities for young men in the Los Angeles area. Recently, Manhood Camp started working directly with fathers via its monthly support group, Fatherhood Circle. Winkler holds a bachelor's degree in psychology and has been working in the community advocacy field for more than a decade. His organization's event, Choose Peace: A Community Celebration and Information Fair, brought together over twenty-six community organizations and received a special appearance and congratulatory speech by the Los Angeles city council president, Herb J. Wesson Jr.
