Bangalore: For every daddy, the little one is an apple of his eye. Distanced from their heart-throbs on the eve of Fathers’ Day it was only natural for them to vent out their anguish. Separated from their wives, woebegone fathers came together under the umbrella of Crisp (Children’s Rights Initiative For Shared Parenting), an NGO that focuses on furthering rights of children to remain connected withboth parents,even after a couple’s separation.
“Conflict between parents will reduce and the mental and emotional health of children will improve when divorcing parents can be assured of equal and meaningful contact. They should also stop wasting precious time in the court,” said Kumar Jaghirdar, president Crisp. Stressing on equal rights for both parents, Jaghirdar observed that in divorce and separation cases, often one of the parents deprive the child of the love and care of theother.
Separated parents craving to be with their little ones came together on the eve of Father's Day in Bangalore on Saturday.
