Dads Started The #SquatForChange Challenge And It Inspired John Legend To Install 5,000 Changing Tables
While the dads of the world out there know that parenting is not solely the woman’s responsibility, it seems like society hasn’t figured it out yet. That’s especially obvious for any dad who has had to change their child’s diaper, only to find the men’s restroom doesn’t have a changing table.
Dads across America took a stand against the problem and started the #SquatForChange challenge and we’re happy to say that it actually worked! Celebrity dad John Legend saw the challenge and decided to take action.
Donte Palmer Shed Some Light On The Problem
In early 2019, father Donte Palmer took to his Instagram to share this photo of how he has to change his son’s diaper. In the post he wrote, “What’s the deal with not having changing tables in men’s bathrooms as if we don’t exist!!!”
He went on to say that it’s not okay that his son is used to the process and that he makes a point to practice wall-sits to prepare for the situation. Donte even said his 12-year-old son often has to help him tag-team the changing process.
