"He Is Fathering, Not Babysitting" - Jenny Mollen Slams People Who Praise Fathers For Taking Care Of Their Own Children

Date September 21, 2018 19:08

Actress and comedian, Jenny Mollen has no holds barred when it comes to sharing her honest opinion on certain issues. 

Asides the fact that she looks totally awesome at parenting, she has decided to respect her children's privacy until they come of an age and can decide if they want to be shown on social media.

In a post on her Instagram page, she says she doesn't post her son Sid's face because she does not want him harassed or recognized in public. Though, she shows Lazlo's face because he is still a baby and is almost never out of the house.

Her reason actually makes perfect sense. Children of celebrities don't get to choose their parents, so it would be best to allow them to make the decision on whether to be flaunted on social media.

Jenny Mollen calls out double standards

Traditionally, dads are praised when they take on the role of looking after their own children. Which is quite funny, especially since it is their own child and they should also be involved in the parenting process.
