Lying awake one night after struggling to put his new-born son back to sleep, Paul Morgan-Bentley found himself desperately scrolling for parenting advice for new fathers. Soon, Paul picked up on a reoccurring narrative - compared to mums, dads were useless. Frustrated by this generalisation and determined every parent should have an equal role in raising their child, Paul decided this narrative needed to change. In this deeply personal experience of fatherhood and parenting alongside his husband, Paul delves into what it really means to share the parental load, and how you can achieve it. With a range of research from around the world, and conversations with leading scientists, The Equal Parent explores the truths behind the falsehoods and myths about parenting roles. This book will help give you the tools to achieve the parenting equality that will benefit everyone in your family: mothers, fathers and, most importantly, your children.
