Nowadays the situation has changed dramatically and both women and men should take so imperative for them decision. Consequently, fatherhood should be accentuated as much as
First of all, statistics states that children have more stable psychic when raised in a family with both parents. Paternal role is especially vital in adolescence, mainly because teenagers learn and practice how to behave and be a family member seeing examples. Usually youngsters reflect and mimic their own family model. For example if a girl was raised by a single mom then most likely she will be a single mom herself because she did not have the right experience when she was a child. A father can teach his son such imperative qualities as courage and bravery. Conversely, teenagers with both parents learn how to develop a correct relationship between woman and man.
Secondly, living in the era of the parity between men and women people are rather more likely than not sharing both household chores and the commitments for upbringing and raising their children. Hence the decision whether to have a baby or not should mutual. What is more by doing genetic test is easy to define paternity and even if a father does not want to admit it he is responsible for his child by law.
To sum up all above-mentioned I would like to reiterate that nowadays it would be completely wrong to undervalue men’s role in a family and it should be equally essential between men and women.
