Gone are the days when we only saw men bonding with their children on beautiful polished pictures on Magazines and books covers. In the first book of my series of books, I boldly state that "Whatever their reasons,some men look after their children full time. In Africa,I can imagine the level of stigmatisation such fathers may be put through, no matter how comfortable they are in being affectionately nurturing towards their children. I can assure you that no matter how much they enjoy this role, involved fathers may be viewed differently in public and in public places".
Yet, many of them do not care. One of the fathers I interviewed; a single father for that matter, voiced that he does not care about what people say about him being a sole parent to his two children, because for him, taking care of your children should not be a choice. It should be a decision.
How many men are taking Michael's stance?
