Top Parenting Influencers in India
Parenting is a job that is hard to comprehend and even harder if you have not been in those shoes yourself. The ‘idea’ of parenting and the ‘act’ are two very different things. And Rachel from Friends is an adequate example to make you understand the difference. But to be a parent these days is easier than before. It still is a tough job but many resources make it conceivable to a parent. And one of those resources is parenting influencers.
Parenting has been refashioned for the past couple of years. It is no more looked up to as a ‘woman’s job’. It is more fluid than before. Parenting is not limited to gender anymore. It is not limited to procreation anymore. Single parenting and co-parenting are now more appraised than before.
Gender-neutral parenting is picking up. The goal is to improve the social-emotional well-being of your child. We are no parenting experts here.

We have reached the end of the list and by now you might be scratching your head and wondering, “Where are the dad influencers? Why is this list only about women influencers?” Well, if you did not think about this, then we feel obliged to introduce you to this underrated discussion.
It’s been only a couple of years since the rise of influencer marketing. And it would be a couple more when ‘dad’ parenting became a thing. So to put it simply, the number of dad influencers in India is almost negligible. It is no surprise that in many societies and households, parenting is mostly limited to mothers. But we as a society are evolving and hence, fathers too have become equally inclusive in parenthood as mothers.
You might not find Indian dad bloggers or influencers as such, but if you have ever tried to or now if you do try to look up for any father influencers, you are bound to come across many stories on the internet about stay-home dads who are doing their bit on a personal level as parents. Many types of research and articles show that fathers are equally involved in parenthood as mothers. Yes, they get paternal leaves. Yes, they help them do their homework. Yes, they cook. The gap between the roles as fathers and mothers is now reducing and parenting has finally broken the bonds of gender norms. In fact, the family system, in general, has evolved as is not restricted to the gender identity or roles of mothers and fathers.
There are probably no dad ‘influencers’ on social media, but if you look at public figures like Durjoy Dutt, Kunal Khemu, Karan Johar, they all share their parenting bits and shenanigans on their social media which is shaping people’s opinions about a father’s role in parenting or a single parent, one day at a time. If you look around yourself, in your friend circle, amongst your peers or colleagues, or family, you would notice the change is slowly coming.
We are sure that there will be many upcoming dad influencers who are going to educate and encourage many others to join this niche. The audience and the top brands that work with bloggers are both eager for it.
