Or should we say that it is time we start shaming mothers? This will not help either. Most parents do not understand that Parenting is in the interest of the child and not theirs. Even though Involved Parenting gives you a peace of mind, it is more necessary as the one most important tool that drives your child to a fulfilling future.
Women who deprive their men of participating in their children’s lives are stealing these children’s future. Fathers who refuse to be there for their children are deviating the children’s future.
It is high time men and women stop prioritising emotions, power, money and every other reasons for rejecting each other and focus on raising the innocent child who did not send a note for them to do the act that made the child to be born.
Women behave yourselves and fall pregnant for need of being a parent rather than want for an ATM.
Men use plastic and any other measures that will stop you from running into bushes and hiding your WhatsApp statuses because you wish to be taken as dead … or not available.
Parenting means building a Child’s future. It does not mean live today.
