    Evolving dads: Fathers are bringing more emotions to parenting - Trib Live

    Brandon Coney was playing football with son Christian, 7, when the young boy fell and hurt himself. Coney immediately could tell his son didn't want to show how shaken he was.

    “I told him it was OK to be upset and show emotion,” says Coney of Regent Square. “I told him he's not any less of a boy because he cried if he hurt himself. It's OK to show that.”

    The moment was just one of many Coney has used to teach his kids about understanding their feelings. His approach to fatherhood is not unique. A report from the Pew Research Center shows gender stereotyping in parents is undergoing a shift.

    I love to see a father nurturing their children. When my oldest children were born dads were not allowed in the room during the birth, mothers were the primary care givers. My oldest son is a single father. His daughter lives with him and he is an awesome parent.
