What is the Future of Fatherhood? Kevin Osborn + Michael Vidikan explain


Men’s attitudes toward everything from work and education to marriage and raising children have been changing over time. What’s driving these changes in attitude? Are men approaching fatherhood differently than previous generations did? How should businesses market to these new dads?

To answer these and other questions, futurists Michael Vidikan interviews Kevin Osborn, author of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Fatherhood” — as well as “The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Bringing Up Baby,” and “The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Parenting a Preschooler and Toddler.”

“A father of four — currently ages 25, 23, 21, and 16 — Kevin has been a stay-at-home dad for decades,” says Vidikan. “Clearly, this man has experience on many levels with this topic.”

In addition, Kevin is the head futurist for Future in Focus, and has written extensively on consumer, technology, and business trends throughout the world, including topics about Millennials as parents, new American grandparents, and stay-at-home dads.

In Part 1 of this 2-Part podcast interview, Vidikan asks Osborn:

  • Men’s attitudes and behaviors have been changing over time. Can you talk about some of the drivers behind these changes?
  • What are some of the social factors at play here?
  • As women are earning as much or more than men, men are increasing their share of household work. Is that true of parenting as well?
  • There are theories that each generation has its own unique set of values and attitudes. Is that what you’re seeing with the Millennial generation?
  • And more!
