Parenting: Is it Different Based on Your Gender (motherhood vs fatherhood)

fatherhood motherhood

Fatherhood and Motherhood. Does gender play a role on a parents perception of parenting? I really don’t know, and I’m not EVEN going to try and figure it out. My opinion is yes, BUT I’m just going to give you some parenting quoted from each gender and let YOU decide.


“I love fatherhood. I could bang on about kids forever.” -Guy Ritchie

“First and foremost, [it has taught me] the true meaning of unconditional love.” -Denver Mayor, Michael Hancock

“I really enjoy being a dad, and maybe I took it too seriously, but I love being around my kids.” -Dana Carvey

“I’m into being a dad, that’s where my focus is most of the time.” -Paul Walker

“Being a father, being a friend. Those are the things that make me feel successful.” -William Hurt

“I love being a dad. If I could I’d take a couple more, one or two more before I croak.” -Richie Sambora

“I love being a dad. I just love it.” -Jerry Seinfeld

“You’re working on being a father, so that is something that when you experience it you will understand the profundity of wanting to protect something dear to you.” -Harvey Keitel


“Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn’t know you had, and dealing with fears you didn’t know existed.” -Linda Wooten

“Being a mother is the most fun job I’ve ever had.” -Ellen Pompeo

“Being a mother adds another emotional dimension, a feel for children that I didn’t have before I had one. They were a pain before.” -Julie Walters

So, what do you think? I find these quotes very interesting. I will let you know that it took a lot more research for me to find quotes by fathers. I found a ton of quotes about fathers but NOT quoted by them. HUH.
