- Agree, mothers are generally better caretakers than fathers are for their kids
- Disagree, the fathers are actually better caretakers of their children than mothers are
- Disagree, it's pretty even that mothers and fathers are good caretakers of their children

Well a lot of guys (in many relationships) are often the breadwinners (not always, but often). So the guy is doing his part by supporting his family financially. I think it can be pretty even/balanced. Both parents just contribute to the child in different ways. (Both are equally important.) I think it's still important for the dad to try to be emotionally present in a child's life (and make the time to do that) whenever he can though (especially for boys), because that can really affect a child's development down the road. And any guy who is willing to (try) and change a diaper once in awhile gets an A in my book. They're only babies once!

I agree that mothers generally do a better job with younger children. However, when kids are in their teens, mothers are overprotective while fathers set limits and try to get their children ready to face the world on their own, so fathers do a better job with older children.
