In African homes, fathers are not homemakers and they are not in charge of the maintenance of the home. Taking care of the babies or children is a responsibility believed to belong to mothers and women.
Although, some men nowadays now embrace the idea of helping out their women and children with chores at home.
A Nigerian father has shown that he doesn't believe the stereotype that women alone should take care of children. A photo of the unidentified father bathing his baby has surfaced on social media.
In the photo, the father was seen holding his child over the baby bathtub in the bathroom. It was, however, not gathered if the man is a single father or a married one.
The man who was identified as an Hausa man received praising for his act on Instagram. The photo was shared by an Instagram user identified as Northern-Hibiscuss.
