Okay, we know that Father's Day probably does not pack the same emotional punch as Mother's Day does for women. We also realize that men don't process or communicate their emotions like women do either. But that does not mean that your husband or partner won't be feeling off kilter this weekend when his friends, brothers or colleagues are celebrating the day with their families. Come Monday, maybe he will feel bad about being the only one in the office without a new coffee mug or new tie. He may not say that out loud, but you as his more emotionally attuned spouse can sense it. So your support and understanding are needed more than ever.
Once again, fertility support organizations and bloggers have come to rescue with their insight, as well as suggestions about how to support all the Someday Dads who can't wait for the day when they too will be the recipient of the "World's Great Dad" mug.
