Why aren't single dad's given enough respect?

Why is it that whenever you complete surveys which asks if you are a mum you get to qualify, yet if you are a single dad you fail to qualify? What is the difference? At the end of the day you are still a parent. I feel as though dads, or even single dads like myself are just ignored as they expect mums to always bring up their children.

I hope that single dads can get the respect that they deserve. People usually think that the mum takes care of the child, but I think that dads sometimes can bring up their children even better. And dads can get a paternity leave too.

Thanks for this lovely comment. I feel as though many single dads, or dads in general don't get given enough respect.

i agree with you craigy. the question should be are you a single parent as there are alot more single dads. i dont see why they only want mums to answer as dads are more than capeable of answering the questions.

I just find it quite sexist the way in which the questions are asked, it is as though if your a mum you will qualify for the survey but if your a dad you won't. It's just wrong.
