Heart Of An Involved Father Is The Masterpiece Of Nature
When the team of BabyChakra sat down to find the winners of #EqualParent contest, the Jury could not keep their story aside. The parenting journey of Jyoti and Mohit Sinha, our Jury’s Choice winners, is an absolute example of how fathers are stepping up in their role and wearing the hat of responsibility resulting in an equal household.
These love birds met in college and tied their marital journey in 2014, after knowing each other for 8-9 years. The couple welcomed baby Kushagri in 2017. While Jyoti has always been a doting wife and mother, she credits her husband Mohit to be her equal parent partner in bringing up Kushagri.
“Parenting came quite naturally to Mohit. I never had to express my needs to Mohit. He has always been understanding enough to pitch in as and where needed both as a parent and husband”- Jyoti
Coming from the entertainment industry which demands good time from Mohit, he never leaves any stone unturned to find time with his daughter to play and pamper her.
From changing diapers to cleaning vomits, this dad has done it all. Although the couple stay in a nuclear family setup and Jyoti is a home maker, Mohit never felt the need to push the parenting responsibility completely towards Jyoti.He always took fatherhood in his stride and stood up to his role in all aspects and capacity without giving any attention to what the society or the gender biased traditions say.
“However tired he might be, but when at home, Mohit always gives me the much awaited break that I need from motherhood. This helps me focus on myself and refresh my mind to tend to my child” - says Jyoti
Mohit is one of those doting fathers who put family before formalities. He believes in creating an unbiased culture at home where husband and wife work more as a team than just being the role players.
“No words are enough to express my admiration for my husband for all he does as a father to kushagri. Babychakra’s contest was definitely a great opportunity for me to express my gratitude and appreciation to my husband for all that he does for my baby and me.”-Says Jyoti
Men seldom like to speak or brag about being an involved father. This generation of modern day fathers come from a background where roles of parenting were defined by gender and were conservative. These emerging dads are breaking that stereotype and evolving as responsible parents not just because they feel the need to share their wife’s responsibilities but because they feel the need to own an equal responsibility of bringing up their child.
