aretoday’s dads better fathersthan their own?

Inspired by the special bond between the dads and their kids we’ve interviewed and photographed for this edition (see our fashion spread on pg 44 and the feature, “The rise of the modern dad” by Thobeka Phanyeko on pg 70), talk in the office has centred around the role dads play in their children’s lives.

“We got the family together and gave each of them a box with two doughnuts inside. Inside the box was a note inside that read,‘Eat up! My mommy can’t be the only one whose belly gets bigger. See you in March 2018. Love, baby Murray.’” Elké Pretorius Murray “We had dinner with both our parents, and after dessert we gave each a gift bag with little white baby booties and underneath we wrote ‘Ouma, ek is oppad!’ They freaked out!” Elaine Taute “With my second child I was watching an episode of Call the Midwife with my parents.
