If we gave fathers the same nonsensical advice we give working mothers

By Ciara Flaherty

There is an endless amount of advice given to working mothers about "how to have it all" with 'all' meaning happy kid, successful careers, great hair, healthy diets, immaculate wardrobes, the perfect beach body, good girlfriends, a supportive husband and a pristine house.

But what if we applied the same type of inane language we use when discussing women in the workplace to men?

This parody Twitter account Manwhohasitall is generating some buzz at the moment for its genius lampooning of the expectations placed on working mothers by imagining if men were subject to the same.

The account's creator, who wishes to remain anonymous, (jokingly) explained their intention to the Huffington Post :

"Don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely fine with dads who work. It boosts their self-esteem and gives them an identity beyond just 'dad.'"

Here are some of the best tweets from the account.

And it's clearly hit a nerve as people realise just how nonsensical it sounds when applied to men.
