During one recent visit to the paedaetrician, I noticed that a lot more fathers are very involved with bringing up their children these days. This was evident because quite a lot of the children were accompanied by their fathers and not their mothers.
There was a father trying to comfort his crying child, a father walking and burping his baby, a father sponging and giving his feverish kid a drink, a father chatting, playing and reading to his kid while waiting for the doctor. This was during working hours on a Monday morning. I was touched by the scene but I wonder …. where did all the mothers go?
I like this new generation of fathers. I am glad my kids have one too. 🙂
