Many of us have the privilege to grow up with a pair of parents. But not many of us have the privilege of having parents who understand and are clear of their individual roles and responsibilities at home.
No matter how cool we want to be, no matter how much we want to be anti-stereotypes, we cannot deny the natural norms. Like how mommies still make the better caregivers. I am speaking generally. If you have wife who sucks in giving care and comfort to your children, then perhaps; you are the minority.
Mothers make the best caregivers. They are detailed and delicate. They notices the little awkwardness in a child. They can smell the slightest problem. They can sooth their children with breastfeeding, cuddling. Loads of touch and kisses to our babies. And this is the original made up of a woman and what we commonly call it as ‘Maternal Instincts’.
So the question is, what does the Father do? And what do our children gather by watching and observing us? What is this term ‘Mommy’ to my son and what does ‘Daddy’ means?
