A young father has gained a lot of attention after SA media personality Khaya Dlanga headed online to share a thread about how well he was looking after his little one, whose mother is in the hospital.

Dlanga wrote on Twitter:

"His wife was in hospital recovering from an operation, so he goes everywhere with his son. He does not leave him with a female relative because he says, “Ngum ntanam.” The child is his and so his responsibility."

"I asked why he didn’t wrap him around with a shawl and he told me it was too hot. If it’s hot for him, it’s also hot for the child. So he just uses his arms to balance him instead.
"Truth is this should not be unusual, nor applauded, but it should be applauded and encouraged precisely because it’s unusual. The little boy was sleeping on his back as they walked. The father had a cheerful and carefree manner about him."

Locals could not agree more with the sentiment and had this to say:

@xmzanywa said:

"I like the way this fish swims, Mzansi needs more fish like him. Phambili to fathers who are being fathers to their kids."

@Black_FRFR said:

"Fish is swimming. Yeah but I still feel fuzzy inside seeing this because most of us grew up without it, some will grow up without it. That child is lucky to know a father's love, it will make a huge difference."

In similar news, parenting is hard work but some people make it look so much easy. The video of a dad making a great effort to ensure his daughter looks good has generated massive reactions on social media.

In a video posted by Twitter user @terex44, the father sat on the bed as he placed his daughter between his legs like mothers would do.

With both hands, he got to work as he parted the girl's hair with masterly strokes that showed he must have been doing it for long.
