UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund in partnership with Readit Bookstore invited fathers and their children and teenagers to an event called “Kakam bilen” (tkm: “With my Dad”) on the occasion of the International Day of Families. 

 

The event started out with a session “Let’s Read, Dad!” inviting fathers to read the excerpts of their kids’ favorite books to the young audience before the panel discussion.

 

The “Let’s Talk, Dad!” panel discussion was moderated by a psychologist and explored the generational differences between fathers and teenagers, the change in social norms in the families and in the society, and highlighted the importance for fathers to engage with their children, including teenagers.
