PM Skerrit wants Fathers to Take Care of Responsibilities
Prime Minister Honourable Roosevelt Skerrit is urging Fathers to take care of their responsibilities, as they cannot leave it for the mothers or the Government to do.
He made the statement during a Father’s Day church service in Toucarie on Sunday June 15th 2014.
“Our fundamental responsibilities as fathers is to provide every form of care to our children – emotional, spiritual and also material support, so it is important to those of us who are not keeping to those principles, it is not too late, we have to recommit ourselves to being wonderful fathers in Dominica and of course the world,” he pointed out.
The Prime Minister stated, it takes a village to raise a child, however if we have strong families in our society we will have a much stronger community and country.
According to Minister Skerrit, if our families are not unified, society will experience many challenges.
“So unity starts at home and strong families and strong countries starts at home and we have to recognize that,” The Prime Minister explained.
