Men are ‘hard-wired’ to care for children…stating the bleedin’ obvious

Let’s keep this brief. Today’s papers are full of stories based on research showing that men are designed to share in the care of children. It’s all about the testosterone levels, don’t you know. You can read all about it in The Daily Telegraph or The Independent.
It’s great that scientists are working out the mechanics of this, but isn’t it a bit depressing that it’s ‘newsworthy’ to discover that humans are designed in such a way that two people who produce a child, are predisposed towards looking after it – thus ensuring the continuation of the species?Tags: For fathers, masculinities, New fathers
