She goes by the name of @Sips_Zat on social media and has shared a sad story regarding her child's meeting with her new lover - Mzansi reacts to her story.
She is based in Johannesburg and says her eight-year-old son recently met her new partner for the first time and the young kid’s reaction left the mother overwhelmed. The stunning woman said her child asked the new guy in the mother’s life whether he could call him dad.
@ Sips_Zat’s latest post has left many of her followers shocked while some looked at the matter and admitted South African men might relate better.
“So, my 8-year-old met the guy in my life for the first time and he asked him for permission to call him dad. What broke my heart is the way he started the conversation. 'Do you know that I don't have a dad? The one I used to have disappeared'."
“We're a generation of broken men trying to do better.”
“Every child deserves a father, or at least a father figure.”
@Nkamtukazi expressed her views:
“This is heartbreaking. I hope this guy sticks around Babe.”
“Effects of apartheid keep on showing up day in day night. We are a broken generation that will break our next generation that will ultimately break the following. We must encourage family structures at all costs. I feel sorry for that guy, it will be difficult to leave.”
“I was a child of separated parents. The greatest strength my mother taught me was in her actions. She fought harder, loved deeper and always put me first. That is the only hope for children without fathers. Mothers with strength, conviction and ethics. God bless. You’ve got this!”
