Beautiful Nigerian actress, Damilola Adegbite, shares some words of advice for single mothers who keep their kids from their fathers.
The talented role interpreter spoke against such act in her message on Father’s Day that was celebrated yesterday, June 20, 2021.
She wrote on her Instagram page that, “There are three categories of single mothers: the ones whose children’s fathers cannot be in their life (e.g dead, incarcerated etc.); the ones whose children’s fathers have abandoned them or who do more harm than good being a part of their lives (e.g cases of domestic violence); and then lastly, the ones who intentionally keep their children/child away from their father because they are angry, bitter, hurt and vengeful.
“To ‘category 3′ mums, today is a good day to reassess the situation. There are many awesome fathers who genuinely crave to be in their children’s lives but are not allowed to by their moms. Trust me, I understand how you feel. Please soften your heart towards them and make decisions based on what’s best for your child.”
“You will not always be able to keep them separated from their father. May our children not grow up and blame us or despise us for depriving them of their fathers’ love.
“Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads. You are loved and appreciated.”
