Dimwit dads

The repeated stereotyping of dads as ‘lazy or stupid’ on TV shows, adverts and in books has been criticised by a new survey, it was reported in mid-June.

The Christian Institute

Online parents group, Netmums, quizzed 2,000 people and nine out of ten said the portrayal of dads was flawed. Almost half of parents polled slammed books, adverts and children’s TV shows like Peppa Pig, The Simpsons and the Flintstones which show dads as lazy or stupid. Almost a third of parents, claimed there is a very subtle form of discrimination against dads.
