Men can be maternal too!

(4 Posts)

Please, tell me that this didn't actually cost money! A load of neuro scientists 'discover' that men can be just as nurturing as women.

Every relationship is different, and in some cases, the father is more 'motherly' or 'paternal' than the mother. Opposites attract, a very warm loving person will normally attract a slightly cooler counterpart. That doesn't mean it's bad parenting, it's just how that person is. You can be as cold as ice, but not necessarily a bad parent.

Men can be paternal. Or nurturing. They cannot, by definition, be maternal.

I did type PATERNAL. It's the Daily Mail, give me some slack, some days I'm amazed at the typos. It's like autocorrect writes it for them.
