Diminishing returns?

I feel like i’m hearing more and more people in church saying that the role of the father in the family has been diminishing in recent years.

Recent years? I’d say the role of the father has been diminishing since humans decided that the best way to deal with a pair-bonding society was to do the hunter-gatherer thing, really.

I don't think the role of the father is diminishing at all. I think some fathers don't try to be involved as they should. In a former stake, they actively encouraged the dads to take the littles, including out of meetings when they were acting up, unless the mom needed to go and nurse them.
