Kids all over the world are growing up without dads. Some out of obvious circumstances… divorce, separation, death… but there’s another trend that is different from all those. The invisible dad.
The invisible dad isn’t going through a divorce. He’s not sick or in jail. The invisible dad isn’t having an affair or traveling 7 days out of the week. In many cases it’s quite the opposite. He’s around all the time. His work schedule is by no means light, but he regularly pulls in a 40 hour week just like the majority of his friends and colleagues, gets home at a decent hour, and doesn’t have a ton to do around the house when he’s there.
The problem with the invisible dad isn’t that he’s gone, it’s that he’s gone.
