Can l love children as parents do?

Dear ObaaYaa,

I am a graduate from one of the tertiary institutions in the country. I have completed my National Service and secured employment in one of the prestigious companies in the country.

My major concern is that l marvel at how parents love their children and do all within their power to ensure that they have all the best of things they need.

Can l also love just as parents do and shower lots of gifts on their children. l am beginning to feel that l may not be able to live up to expectation as a father.

Dear Joseph,

When you observe people from a distance, it paints a different picture as regards how they act in a particular way and what really informs the decision they make.

There is a biological link among parents, children and relatives.  Surprisingly, this unique bond keeps them together so long as they live.

The filial love between parents and children grows naturally.  Imagine a mother who carries the child in the womb for nine months before she is delivered of her child.

The first task of a young girl who gives birth is to breastfeed the child. Having done this for a few days prepares the grounds for the commencement of love between parents and children.
