There are many things I foresaw in my life. Fatherhood wasn’t one of them.
Don’t get me wrong. I didn’t become a father by accident.
First I fell in love with a girl, we dated for half a decade, decided to get married and then we thought it will be nice to have children.
I know that if I was to depend on my own experiences growing up, I will become a terrible father but fortunately, I don’t have to. I am surrounded by positive examples. Great books abound on fatherhood and with a little effort, we guys can all have a great go at it.
I know a couple in Accra who are about to run a course on parenting. Both mothers and fathers should be interested. Are you interested?
