Some men who actively care for their children have taken to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction with society’s view of their positions, and how people tend to believe it’s strange for them to be doing’mommy’s’ job.

 

Damilola Praiseworth, a father, started by recounting how a nurse in the hospital saw him changing his son’s diapers and stared at him with contempt, saying, “Why is daddy doing mommy’s job?” Please return the baby to his mum.’

 

He went on to explain other events, saying that when people see him doing something for his kids, they think his wife is incompetent.

 

 

He condemned this perception and said men should be as much involved in the care of their children as women and such men shouldn’t be praised like they are doing anything exceptional.

 

He wrote: ‘It’s sad to see that our society has given silly excuses for men not to be involved or responsible & instead focus on training women on how to cope with irresponsible men like there’s no other way. And when they see a man who is loving & involved, he is perceived as a weakling.

‘While there are irresponsible men, I have seen more sincere young men who want to do better & be more responsible but don’t know how to start because at the slightest try, they get push back from society with statements like “Don’t you know you are a man? Why are you doing this?”‘

 

His thread led other involved fathers to share their experiences.
