Whilst recent news and reports on the novel Coronavirus pandemic have spelt doom for the world, Counseling Psychologist and Educationist, Angela Lartey, has revealed that a positive result of COVID-19 is that fathers can now bond with their children, as many families around the globe are staying home to prevent the spread of the disease.
In an interview with Eunice Tornyi on e.TV’s African Women’s voices, she stated that the modern dad works very hard to provide the needs of the family and that usually keeps them away from home, especially from their children. However, with the Coronavirus outbreak, a lot of fathers are staying home with their children.
“Children always love their dads. The only problem is that the fathers are hardly around. Fathers must spend time with the children more during this time. Listen to what they say about their activities.This is the time to bond with children”, she advised.
As the novel Coronavirus disease hits the globe,millions have been advised to stay home to prevent the spread of the disease. Countries such as Italy ,China, among others have recorded a high number of Coronavirus-related deaths.
Ghana has also had its share in the recording of Coronavirus cases including deaths. The Government of Ghana in its efforts to prevent the spread of the disease directed the closure of public and private educational institutions in the country.
