Becoming a father is a wonderful thing. It is like having something outside of yourself that is more important and precious than you. While it is quite necessary for the mother and the new-born to develop a strong and deep connection, it is also important for the father to spend some quality time bonding with his child.
Mothers already have a connection with the new-born as she carried the child for nine months hence in general when bonding with a new-born is thought of, the picture of mother and her child tend to come to mind. We completely ignore the fact that the child also needs the father just as much it needs the mother.
The father is considered to be the decision maker and the bread earner. He spends most of his time working, the rest of which he spends either on daily chores or preparing stuff for the next day.
