Letter: Popular dads

Sir: So 80 per cent of children want more time with their fathers (report, 10 April). Why has this been interpreted as a sign that the "new father" is a myth? Perhaps we should be congratulating "new men" if their children want more time with them - if children had wanted more ice-cream we would not assume ice-cream sales had fallen.
