The role of a modern Dad is changing. He's no longer just the breadwinner. In some homes, he's the bread-maker, plus the chauffeur and babysitter. Today, the success of a father is not based solely on how well a dad provides, but on how good his relationship is with his children. We'll explore the role of fatherhood, where it's been, where it is and where it is going. The evolution of Dad on The Sound of Ideas.
