Obviously You Have Lived in the Middle East

...and observed fathers there first-hand.

Some in the world believe "we" parent by turning the TV on for our kids and handing them the latest combat video game. Some believe "we" have exported our materialistic consumerism and tolerance of a sexualized mentality.
