Photo of Dad Sleeping on Hospital Floor Inspires Necessary Conversations About Equal Parenting

 

Sarah Duncan is a mom that recently shared the photo of her husband Joe sleeping on the floor of an emergency room. The image was initially shared on Facebook and racked up thousands of likes, shares, and comments – and for a good reason!

She explained in the post that her husband had to take their baby to the ER, and he had just finished his 12-hour shift as a cement technician. Unfortunately, he had to go back to work in just a few hours, so the mom tried to convince him to stay home and rest. However, he refused to leave his baby and his wife alone in the hospital, so what he changed into clean work clothes and went to the hospital with them.

The mom shared the post to raise awareness that marriage is not always 50-50. It’s sometimes 70-30, even 80-20, and all you have to do is to be willing to put your weight. Check out the post for yourself below.

Wow! What a touching story! Many social media users praised the parents and said that it’s an inspirational story.

The reality is, however, that although equality between men and women has come a long way, it’s still far from being resolved. The reality is that the daily domestic tasks and the work we often call ’emotional labor’ still disproportionately falls on women.
