Daddy, Father, Pop, Papa, Poppa – such different ways to refer to a dad. And this is just in English, what about in other languages? So, how do YOU call your dad? Or rather, how do your kids refer to you as their dad?
Many a times, we hear testimonials or read articles expressing how frustrating it is for a dad to be excluded from experiencing what its like having a baby during the 9-month pregnancy. Compared to the older generations, daddies of the newer generation are participating more actively not only in the upbringing of their child but also in baby chores. And to think that today, it is becoming more and more usual to have home makers who are dads, in other words, a “home dad”. This leads us to a reflexion: Is paternal love becoming more maternal? Then again, does it really matter?
As the largest marsupial, a male kangaroo is referred to as a boomer, jack or buck while the baby is a joey. One would think of a four-legged animal when we refer to a “Bull”, “Cow” and a “Calf”. To the surprise of many, this is not the case! In fact, these words refer to a family of dolphins – ”Bull” for the papa dolphin, “Cow” for the mama dolphin and “Calf” for the baby.
