Equal responsibility

Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, May 23, 2014

CHILDREN should be looked after equally by their parents, says Fiji Women's Crisis Centre executive director Shamima Ali.

Ms Ali made the comment at the Eliminating Violence Against Women workshop for police personnel in the North at the Labasa Scouts Hall this week.

"There should be equal parenting in the homes," Ms Ali said.

"Women shouldn't be the only ones tasked to look after the children but men too have their share of the responsibility.

"Taking care of the children is also a man's job. This will give them the opportunity to nurture and take good care of their children.

"They should spend as much time as they can with their children so they can also develop a good relationship."

Ms Ali said couples should strive to understand each other better.

"A woman should know her husband's bank account details, how much he earns, how much money he has in the bank and overall, his personal life.

"This should also be the case for men to their wives. This will foster a good and healthy relationship."
