The Debate

Extracts from this document...


The Debate Host: Welcome to tonight's show. We have for you tonight two people who are arguing about the question of "Should a Man be a Mother and More Involved with the Children?" First we have Rick Sanders, hi Rick. Second we have Julie Highfield, hi Julie. Rick, what do you think about being a male mother and how has it affected your life? Rick: Hello, thank you for including me tonight's debate. I am personally really enjoying being a male mother. I love spending time with my daughter. I think that this affected me a great deal because before I hardly saw my wife or child because of work. Now because I have exceeded my work amount I have quit my job and have become a full time male mother. I think that being involved with your own children is a great start for their lives and it gives you a great feeling that you belong, but this cannot be said in any discussion and believed you have to try it. ...read more.


This happens due to neglect. Mr. Sanders listen; I work an 8 hour day from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., 6 days a week. My husband works an 8 hour security guard job from 8.30 p.m. until 4.30 a.m. He sleeps until about 4.00 p.m. and then looks after our daughter until I get home from work. Then I take over until he comes back from work the next day. Rick: Hold on, hold on. So what you are trying to tell me is that your husband looks after your child in the day, which makes him a male mother like me and you still disapprove of this because you don't think its right. Either you have a disillusioned view, your arrogant or you despise men even if they try to help you like your husband obviously is, the difference between my family and yours is that I don't have to work and so I can spend all ...read more.


I don't believe that any father would intentionally not see their child so I think that with the time fathers get with their children, they should turn that into quality time and should remember that for ever. Julie: People today have a fixed picture of the perfect household, a woman who cooks, cleans and looks after the children. A man who works all day and comes home expects food on the table. This is one of the most prejudiced and very discriminative points of view. So therefore I think that I could possibly go along with male motherhood. Rick: Julie, Thank you for finally agreeing with me about male motherhood. Thank you audience for listening to us in this time deliberation. Julie: Thank you, goodnight. Host: Thank you for listening, thank you Julie and Rick, it was great listening to you. Join us next time when we will be talking about. "Should the U.K join the Euro?", thank you again and goodnight. ...read more.
