FROM THE DAD’S PER­SPEC­TIVE

Little Treasures - - SUB­SCRIP­TION OF­FER -

I al­ways en­joy get­ting my copy of Lit­tle Trea­sures and this is­sue was no ex­cep­tion, I re­ally en­joyed the ar­ti­cle on the dad’s side. So of­ten the fo­cus is on Mum and it was great to read about the dad’s per­spec­tive. My hus­band of­ten felt a lit­tle left out as it’s all about Mum, es­pe­cially at the be­gin­ning, which I was more than fine with, but re­flect­ing back and read­ing this ar­ti­cle, the dad’s side is so im­por­tant. Fam­i­lies are chang­ing; the par­ent­ing role is a shared one and the bal­ance of two par­ents makes the fam­ily unit whole. As a fam­ily we take up par­tic­u­lar roles. I was re­cently in­formed that I do all the work and Dad’s the fun one – I’ve taken that on board and I’m go­ing to try and change that bal­ance, be more fun and chill out with the kids. They grow up so fast and the wash­ing will al­ways be there! I won­der what Dad thinks about that? Caro­line, Christchurch
