There, today is the day. We are already officially immersed in the "Father's Day" one more reason to party, celebrate, entertain, laugh, share but perhaps it is also a day to claim and strengthen figures in this of raising children.
What do some parents claim precisely on a day like today, on "Father's Day"? Well, they ask for equality, nothing more and nothing less. There are parents who demand it and perhaps it is because they have reason to do so.
For those who do not like the traditions coming from the other side of the ocean, I don't know if you are going to like this fact, but it turns out that "Father's Day" was born in 1909 in the United States and it was a daughter who encouraged him to pay tribute to his own father and the importance he had had in his life and that of his brothers after the death of his mother, facing only the upbringing of his six children.
Well, that first date was really in June but of course, with the passage of time, kilometers and religious beliefs, in Spain it was set on March 19, coinciding with the day of San José.
Tribute, enjoy and celebrate are always those verbs that like to conjugate but Father's Day has a greater and different meaning for some parents. Parents like these who want to be active in the education and upbringing of their own children and their families.
It's not about helping, it's about exercising co-responsibility between the two adults of the family, the mother and the father. It's about reconciliation being real to both. It is about claiming, making visible and of course acting, of taking action.
They are a group of parents, many of them known on social networks and some of them even known on this website. They are an increasingly large group of parents seeking equality, something in which we all agree more. Because taking for granted that the person who has to always be the caretaker of others is inevitably the woman, is something unfair not only for us but also for them, or have you never thought about it from their point of view?
For real equality, for responsible parenthood, because parents also know and want to take care of their children, that's why they ask aloud "And what do you do?" and leave the issue in the air. Everyone who answers it and acts accordingly, don't you think?
