Dads are increasingly responsible for the care and upbringing of their offspring if a survey, commissioned by John Lewis, is to be believed.

The retailer asked nearly 1000 women who would be the primary carer in the first year of their child's life. Debunking many of the stereotypes, 1 in 4 respondents claimed that the Dad would be looking after the child between 75% and 100% of the time.

An indication, if nothing else, that the role of father as primary carer is not just in the minds of men!
