And I hear a lot about love. A husbands love, a wife’s love etc etc and one ting I heard over and over again is a mothers love.
I get it.
She carried her child, she gave birth to it, nursed it, and nurtured it.
So when I hear that a mothers love is great, I get it.
But what I don’t understand, and this is what really frustrates me, is when a mothers love is considered, and made out to be greater than a fathers love.
So while we can’t compete with the child carrying, birthing, nursing etc, I think it’s fair to say that as dads, we have as much love for our kids as the mums do.
So when someone says that “a mothers love for her child is great” let me correct you- a parents love for their child is great.
This plays directly into the hands of people who consider dads as the accessory parent .. the baby sitter, the part time care giver.
As a dad who works away a lot, I can’t get my head around the whole thing … Any other dads feel the same way?
