EP 5- Discussing the role of fathers with Dawood Vaid

In this episode,¬†I am joined by the visionary educationist, inspiring public speaker, loving father to three daughters and the celebrated founder of “Burooj Realization”, brother¬†Dawood Vaid.

We addressed a social issue, an aspect of the family structure that is seldom talked about- the role of father’s in their child’s life. The youth is confronted by a wide range of problems in our contemporary times, one of which is the relationship with one’s father. The sense of estrangement, disconnection and distance some daughters’ and sons’ feel is an area of concern and so today we explored this topic and discussed:

  • The role of the father in their child’s life
  • Waves of miscommunication and how they can be rectified
  • Why problems emerge
  • How to make amends
  • The importance of choosing a suitable spouse
  • Practical, pragmatic tips for children and fathers
  • The significance of fostering a healthy relationship from the early years
