Fatherhood needs to be broken.

Or at least the way we think about it does. Despite that the way we think about dads has changed, our culture is still swarming with images and stories about fathers who are absent, irrelevant or incompetent.

Dads are stepping up. It's time our culture caught up with them.

Breaking Dad is a home for all dads, moms, sons, daughters, guardians and grandparents who want to break the rules of fatherhood. It's for anyone who wants stories of real fatherhood - the mundane and the magnificent.
