When my partner Chris and I had our children 30 and 28 years ago, he was the only father in his large public organisation to take a day a week specifically to look after our daughter and then our son. Such was the strangeness of the idea that the BBC interviewed him for being an ‘involved father’.
"I think this is outrageous - unfair on the mother; unfair on the father, who's being made to feel unimportant. He needs to bond too."
"I just think that when you've got a three-month-old baby and you're exhausted and you're doing everything on your own, the hurt and pain."
