In 1972, Father’s Day officially became a holiday across the nation — nearly 60 years after Mother’s Day became an official holiday. Historically, women were economically dependent on men, and mother’s were expected to stay home and raise their children.
However, over the last 50 years, the amount of women entering the workforce has increased substantially, and as a result, many families are comprised of two working parents. It is because of this shift that more father’s have had a bigger role in their children’s lives. Today, most parents split the responsibilities of the children and household evenly.
