妈妈们觉得爸爸真的很棒!

育儿需要夫妻双方的共同努力以及很多团队合作!

从在产房给妻子加油鼓劲到半夜给孩子喂奶,爸爸们以自己的方式来支持家庭。

父亲参与研究联盟(FIRA)表示,“积极参与的父亲会与孩子有更多的积极互动,也会更关注孩子的成长,更好地理解和接受孩子,享受更亲密的父子关系。”

妈妈们在家庭中常常扮演守护者的角色,这有时会影响爸爸的育儿程度(或,希望参与!),还会在不知不觉中影响父子关系的活力。在充满挑战的人生道路上,爸爸也是妈妈的依靠和支柱,从护理受伤的膝盖到教导孩子规矩和灌输价值观。

虽然在助力全球儿童健康成长的问题上,父母双方的观点常常是相反的,但在孩子成长的过程中,一个尽职的父亲肯定是至关重要的,并且值得受到鼓励。

妈妈们用爱的语言来表达对孩子爸爸的感谢

我们采访了四位新加坡的妈妈,她们对丈夫在育儿上的支持表达衷心的感谢。妈妈们非常感激爸爸为孩子和家人付出的一切!妈妈们可能不会经常这么说,但是爸爸的每个动作都在向妻子诉说千言万语。共同养育你们的孩子,就像培育花朵一样,用你们的爱让花绽放吧!

“他到现在都很愿意帮我的一个大忙是他愿意值夜班照顾孩子。”

致两个孩子的父亲Ken

我要感谢我的丈夫在照顾孩子的头几年里给予我巨大的支持。他到现在都很愿意帮我的一个大忙是他愿意值夜班照顾孩子。从我们的孩子用奶瓶喝奶开始,他就一直半夜醒来给孩子喂奶然后哄孩子睡觉。他知道我要好好休息第二天才能状态好。此外,他还经常鼓励我有“独处时间”,因为他知道我需要“充电”。所以,在我休息的时候,他会帮忙照顾孩子。真的非常感谢他,他真的很棒。

“半夜醒来照顾孩子(比如冲奶粉),让我能多休息一下。”

致两个孩子的父亲Aw

 

致我亲爱的丈夫Aw,

你时而让我发狂;

时而让我欢笑。

我觉得这就是爱的意义所在。

我很感激你为我和全家所做的一些小事情,并且愿意花时间陪我们(虽然你可以选择加班来获取额外收入)。

半夜醒来照顾孩子(比如冲奶粉),让我能多休息一下。

在我失意之时,愿意倾听我的唠叨。

你是我的伴侣、爱人和最好的朋友。

谢谢你一直在我身边。你是最棒的!

“你从来不会忘记提醒女儿我们有多爱她。”

致老公期盼第二个孩子的父亲Terence

亲爱的老公,感谢你陪我一起度过了13年的美好时光,与我共同体验照顾孩子的起起伏伏。看到你对我们女儿的宠爱,用爱悉心照顾她,我感到非常温暖。虽然有时为了教导她而做出不讨人喜欢的决定,但你从来不会忘记提醒女儿我们有多爱她。我们期待下个月将要迎来的我们的第二个宝宝,我知道我们即将迎来最美好的时刻,可以依靠你来共同创造更美好的回忆!

— Justina

 

“他支持我所有的决定,并与我共同努力实现目标。”

致两个孩子的父亲Changhan

真的非常感谢老天赐予我一个美好的伴侣、朋友、丈夫和父亲。从我们生下第一个孩子到第二个孩子,他都给予我极大的支持。当我照顾家里和宝宝而需要帮助的时候,他会一直在我身边陪伴我。此外,他很愿意花时间陪我和孩子,愿意倾听我最喜欢的育儿方式。他支持我所有的决定,并与我共同努力实现目标。亲爱的,谢谢你!

Fathers, Mums Want You to Know that You are Awesome!

Parenting takes two to clap, and plenty of teamwork to boot!

From playing cheerleaders at the delivery suite, to helping with night feeds, fathers play a supporting role in their own ways.

According to the Father Involvement Research Alliance (FIRA), “Involved fathers are more likely to see their interactions with their children positively be more attentive to their children’s development, better understand, and be more accepting of their children, and enjoy closer, richer father-child relationships.”

Mums often play the role of gatekeepers in the family, and that sometimes influences how much fathers are involved in parenting (or, want to be involved!), and that would unknowingly affect the dynamism of a father-and-child relationship too. Fathers are also pillar of strength and support for mums during the challenging journey, from being the protective father who nurses a wounded knee to instilling child discipline and imparting values.

While both parents are antagonistic when it comes to raise healthy, world-ready children, the importance of an engaged father during a child’s growing up years is certainly instrumental, and deserves more than just a pat on the back.

Celebrating fatherhood with words of love from mummies

We spoke to four mummies in Singapore who share their heartfelt gratitude for having their spouse’s support in parenting. Fathers, these mums want you to know that they appreciate what you do for the children and family! Mums may not say it often, but every action from papas speaks a thousand words to your ladies. Raising your children together is like nurturing your flowers and watch them blossom with your love!

“One great help he has rendered up till this day is his willingness to do night duty.”

To Daddy Ken, father of two:

I would like to thank my husband for always lending me immense support during these initial years of parenting. One great help he has rendered up till this day is his willingness to do night duty. From the time our boy could take to bottle-feeding, he has been waking up in the middle of the night to feed him or get him back to sleep. He knows I need my rest so that I can function properly the next day. Also, he often encourages me to get some ‘ME’ time because he knows I need to be recharged. So, while I get my time off, he would look after the kids. Really thankful to him, my awesome partner.

“Waking up in the middle of the nights for the kids (eg: to prepare their milk), which allows me to have more rest.”

To Papa Aw, father of two:
To my dear partner aka Papa Aw,

Sometimes, you do make me mad;

Sometimes, you do make me laugh.

I believe that’s what love is about?

I appreciate the little things you have done for me & our family. Spending your time with us (though you could have choosen to work OTs for extra income)

Waking up in the middle of the nights for the kids (eg: to prepare their milk), which allows me to have more rest.

Just listening to my naggings when I’m down.

You are my partner, lover and my best friend.

Thanks for always being there for me. You’re the best!

— Xiuli

“You never fail to make it a point to remind her (daughter) that she is very much loved by her mum and dad.”

To hubby Terence, father of one & expecting their second child:

Thank you, dear hubby, for 13 awesome years of being together and for going through the ups and downs of parenting. It warms my heart to see how you dote on our little girl and shower her with love and attention. Although there are times when there is a need to step in to discipline her by making unpopular decisions, you never fail to make it a point to remind her that she is very much loved by her mum and dad. As we look forward to the arrival of our second bundle of joy next month, I know that the best is yet to come and I know that we can count on you to create more happy memories together!
— Justina

 

“He supports me in all my decisions and walks with me to try to make them successful.”

To Daddy Changhan, father of two:

I really want to thank God for a wonderful partner, friend, husband and father in my life. He has been a great source of support when we had our first child, and to our second child. I remembered there were many times when I need help with the house and baby, he will always be there with me. Often, he would offer to spend time with our children and be willing to listen to me on my preferred type of parenting. He supports me in all my decisions and walks with me to try to make them successful. Thank you, darling!

Fathers, you’re more important than you think when it comes to parenthood. Together, you can build a wholesome family environment for your children to thrive and blossom into strong, independent people who value the importance of relationships and marriages.

Mums, do you have a special message to your husbands? Remember to share your heartfelt words of appreciation to let them know they are awesome!
