What to say this Father's Day: I.e. What do you _NOT_ want to hear in Sacrament Mtg?

I ask because I've been preparing a talk (my wife also), on Fathers, for Father's day. So, what canards, stereotypes, etc. do _NOT_ belong in a Father's day talk?

I don't want to hear a thing about fathers just because it's fathers day. Fathers day is a crock, and it's too bad our LDS culture has bought into it.

Retroactively, please avoid talking about how men are responsible for providing a lot of money for their families. We've got to respect the diversity of people's situations--says the guy who's been in graduate school for his whole marriage so far.

LOL- that was me until December, roasted. 8 years of marriage- all spent in undergrad and then 6 1/2 years of grad school.

I hear your pain.

It would have been better for you not to talk about fathers at all, unless you were planning to anyway. There is nothing inherently special about father's day whicyh should cause you to discuss fathers.
