Podcast Episode 237: Double Standards in Parenting: How Farideh’s Music Has Us Laughing and Crying at the Same Time

Have you ever been at a family gathering, and your child throws a tantrum?

As a mom, you’re expected to handle it with grace and patience. But what if it’s your partner?

Suddenly, the expectations shift.

This scenario isn’t uncommon, highlighting the pervasive double standards in parenting that often go unnoticed. Let’s delve into this topic, explore its impact on partnerships, and discuss the crucial need for open communication.

Our guest on this podcast episode is none other than Farideh! From her viral hit “You’re Such a Good Dad” to songs like “Make a List” her work is SO relatable. We talk about the double standards for Moms and Dads in parenting, societal pressures and expectations that are definitely not helping our stress, and the expectation that Mom is a living and breathing calendar keeper for the entire family.

For any Mom who has found herself rolling her eyes when a Dad gets a big pat on the back for taking time out of his schedule to “watch” his children, this one’s for you!

  • The societal patterns that contribute to double standards for Moms and Dads and how that can create stress in a partnership
