The traditional and somewhat restricted definition of 'father' as being defined by biological connection and living with a child is redefined and realistically expanded to reflect South African culture in the report. This shows fatherhood beyond simplistic models of the so-called norm of the nuclear family, encompassing the entire spectrum of fatherhood from social fathers such as maternal and paternal uncles, grandfathers, older brothers, to mother's partners who play a role in providing livelihood, education, guidance and paternal love. 20 Jul 2018 Read more
