These women imply I can’t manage simple parenting | #parenting | #parenting | #parenting | #kids


DEAR MISS MANNERS: I’m a single working father of four. I’m often given unasked-for parenting advice from female parents who often, frankly, have much less parenting experience in general, and absolutely none with my own kids.

This ranges from comments like, “Children often do better in their mom’s lap” as I’m booking plane seats, to being the only parent on an email chain to get extra tips and help on a class project (e.g.: “Remember to get 10 cheese and 10 chicken quesadillas for the class party!”).

I’m a triple-board-certified physician with multiple advanced degrees from an Ivy League school. I have 54 cumulative parent years under my belt. I can bring quesadillas to a first-grade party.

You point out that using the term “mansplaining” overgeneralizes, so I won’t call this behavior “momsplaining.” What would you call it?
