Happy Father’s Day! ‘Tis the season to talk about dads. In years past, the internet burst at the seams with Father’s Day gift guides. You might have purchased a greeting card featuring a necktie or a barbecue grill; or you might have seen a meme about dads watching too much sports or hoarding the television remote.
But this Father’s Day has been different. The narrative has changed. Dads are a powerful and important part of a child’s development and happiness, and our culture is beginning to take notice. They’re stepping out from behind mom’s shadow and saying, dads matter too.
We’ve seen scads of fabulous Father’s Day content this past week – some of it from right here at Johnson & Johnson – and we’ve curated some of the best pieces about dads and their vital role in their children’s lives:
