THE EDITOR: Nine months from Carnival the birth rate will increase. The men will have to shoulder the responsibility.
Being a parent is the hardest job in the world. Why is that?
Time is precious to a child. We TT males have an opportunity for improvement. You feel me?
First things first. Are you a father or a dad?
Many TT fathers are missing from their children’s lives. When a father is absent, it can have a negative impact on a child’s behaviour and psychological development.
Are you father or dad?
Dads are the best role models. Dads listen and give good advice. Dads are not afraid to cry. Dads protect their children. Dads spend quality time with their children. Dads can be both mama and papa bear when necessary. Dads do not put friends before family.
Note well: Dads take care of their children. Dads do everything for their children. Dads never stop protecting their children.
Fathers in TT, there is a lot of work to be done. We always get a bad name. Anyone can be a father. It takes a real man to be a dad.
