Obligation vs favour!

I must stipulate that before all of you fathers cry poor, the following comment is not relevant to all cases ....... but upon chatting with a few friends tends to be a common occurrence!

One thing that perplexes me is the role that fathers think they play vs the role that is part and parcel of fatherhood.

Why is it when fathers look after their kids for an hour or two to let the mother go off and have some downtime, it is a favour to the mother rather than part of their obligation as a father. Like they signed up for babysitting duties instead .......... OK where credit is due, without the $10 per hour!
