Letter: Women desert children too
Sunday 28 March 1999
How do you think I feel when I take my kids to the cinema, or to Alton Towers on Sunday afternoon, and people in the queue make it quite clear that they assume I am a Sunday-afternoon dad and "it's better for them if I don't lose contact". It makes me quake with rage to know that I am an undervalued anomaly. I love my kids and am deeply committed to bringing them up, and have never resented the resources and time they take, or the career-limiting aspect of being a single dad. I hope that future articles on this subject will not be so blatantly sexist.
