Raising a child requires the love and attention of the mother as well as the guidance and ideals of the father. When combined together, a child gets the parenting they need to be able to live in this world. Yet, in Egypt, the father’s role when it comes to the children is usually financial rather than emotional. Trying to tackle this issue and change the system, Mina Thabet created the Fathership blog to make his voice heard.
In his video, Thabet sends a clear message to both mothers and fathers reflecting the importance of a father’s role in their children’s life.
Part of his message to mothers is asking them to give their husbands a chance for the sake of their children. On the other hand, Thabet addresses fathers in Egypt and clearly states that it is their role to fight for having a parental role in their children’s life. Watch the full video to understand the effect of a father’s role on raising children.
Unfortunately, in our society, it is believed that bringing up children is solely the responsibility of the mother. In this video, Thabet discusses how the lack of a father figure can affect the child and why it is important to change this perception entirely when it comes to fatherhood and parenting.
