What a truly beautiful video honoring motehrs who bring life into this world. And yes our children will always be children. I tell that to my grown son everytime we discuss him being "my baby". He loves it though because he knows momma will always be there for him. ALWAYS!
So why bring up this video now? Well it seems a select few have an issue with a video that highlights mom and want to scream what about dad - this is sexist and showing bias towards men. Don't believe me? Just look at this video and the comments on youtube and pasted below:

Reply | Spam The blatant sexism is disgusting. This could have easily been avoid by saying "P&G: Proud sponsor of Parents." Father's love there children too!!!

Reply | Spam Wow. P&G puts out a beautiful, tasteful commercial honoring moms, and you are 'disgusted' by it. I showed this ad to my wife so that she could be inspired. You probably had yours get you another beer.
This one had to waste several comments space to show his/her disgust:

Reply | Spam mother walked out on him when he was a young child, and that he was raised by his father.
You should know that men and fathers are very tired of being slighted, made fun of, denigrated, unmentioned, and taken for granted.
I, for one, will do my level best to avoid P&G products whenever possible as the direct result of this campaign, and I will tell everyone I know to do the same. waterrat69 (1 week ago) Show Hide +5 Marked as spam
Reply | Spam It is particularly disconcerting when in both the United States and Canada, that fathers do not walk out on their families nearly to the extent that mothers push the fathers out unilaterally, and then do their level best to poison children against their own fathers. It is a very real social problem, and is compounded by your biased anti-father, pro-mom campaign.
It is particularly ironic in the face of the fact that Apolo Anton Ohno was sponsored by the Thanks Mom campaign, that his own

Reply | Spam Dear Rebecca and Kirk,
I read today that P&G is the proud sponsor of Olympic contenders Moms with its Thanks Mom campaign developed by W&K.
As a father, I am offended by this blatant, sexist, and deliberate slight to fathers. It compounds the social problem of the denigration of fathers, and is a very public statement that fathers are disposable, unnecessary, and irrelevant.

Reply | Spam So what? Does Proctor & Gamble think Dad's are unimportant too? I get so tired of Dad's being dissed and getting no respect. So I want to thank my dad for showing me how to be strong, for giving me courage, for demonstrating to me the kind of man I should marry by taking good care of my mom. Thank you for walking me down the aisle at my wedding, for all the long talks about life and for working so hard to make sure we had all the things we needed growing up. TO DAD. I LOVE YOU AND THANKS!!!!

Reply | Spam Although the first 90% of the commercial is touching, the last screen is enraging. The blatant sexism is disgusting. This could have easily been avoid by saying "P&G: Proud sponsor of Parents." It is unfortunate that P&G is stuck in a time warp in that the only person who cleans in a household is the mother. I will no longer be supporting this company that promotes the oppression of women.
One of my absolute favorites (shows exactly where these men and male supporters thoughts lie:

Reply | Spam @reynoso2 This is exactly what happens when we don't give our women enough clothes to iron. We need stop letting women have internet privileges and free time where they can start to imagine a world where they're "equal" to men. How ridiculous a thought is that? I say: Start cleaning, iron those shirts, and go make me a motherf**king sandwich!
So I say to P7G - WAY TO FREAKING GO!!!!!! You have succesfully alienated 48% of the adult populatioon. Oh no you say? Yeah because not all men are pigs like these listed above. Probably only about 2% of all men are pigs who subscribe to antiquated ideas like these (respecting mom or praising mom is dissing dad). So what is 2% of 48%? Less than 1% of all people, but sadly they are noisy and they need countering. So people - SUPPORT P&G - buy their products - call them and email them and tell them they did a wonderful job on this commercial. Praise the filming and production companies. Mothers can be honored and it does NOT mean we are dissing dads. Guys (and the women who support them) get over yourselves..... Grow up and get out of grade school into the real world. It is not all about you.....
