Nappies can be one of the less appealing aspects of babies and as far as I am concerned any father who changes nappies gets my vote. Apparently some men have been met with hostility when they have entered a parents’ room to change nappies. I think it is a beautiful thing when fathers are prepared to involve themselves in all aspects of child-raising. Perhaps we need to make parent’s rooms more men-friendly and make it clear men are more than welcome.
In my experience most women just love men who are prepared to involve themselves with the less glamourous aspects of child-raising. Rest assured guys (and I think I can speak for most women here), if you are in the parent’s room changing nappies, most of us feel nothing but admiration and respect for you.

Unfortunately anybody involved in American schools and universities these days has to consider the possibility of somebody showing up with a gun. Great advice for dealing with an active shooter.
