I once thought it would be hard for a father to build a strong relationship with his child, but when my baby girl was born I started bonding with her the moment she came home from hospital.
I told myself I wasn’t going to let her mom do this on her own because she went through hell during her pregnancy. During that time I wished I could help her but there was nothing I could do – but I knew my time would come when I could play my role.
I performed the duties traditionally performed by a woman – like preparing bottles, feeding her, changing nappies and built a strong bond with her.
Now, four years later, we’re a great team and I hope no one will come
between us. It’s never too late for any father to do the same, and that father could be you, so this is the time to start. LETLADI WA GA-MPHAHLELE, MARALALENG
