    Stating the need of a father in the lives of their children cannot be overemphasied. It was a good read.

    Active participation in the care of children is essential but there is a need to sensitize and help our men make a good use of the paternity leave. I learnt Lagos State is giving civil servants paternity leave, but come to think of it, how many men really use the leave to take care of the newborn. Most men use the period to prepare for naming ceremony and even rest from work. This is the work of Paternalism in our world view, where men are seen as supreme beings andthey are not involved in the domestic works or care of children.

    It’s indeed a very great idea if adopted and utilised. Men need to do better than just provide money. Women also need the support of men to raise complete and sane children…it shouldn’t be a one sided training. And with the trend of women also contributing to the family income, men also need to contribute to child training and wellbeing.

    This is so tastefully written that I can’t even think straight. Great job Banji and Ohotu 👏🏾
    This is a topic that is very important and truly cannot be overemphasized. However, our law-makers and governmental bodies are not ready to have this conversation.
    Thank you for taking the time to write this

    This is a really important issue. Thank you for shedding light on this topic. I cannot over emphasize the role of the father in the upbringing of a child especially for newborns.
