Am I able to care and raise my child?

No one can ever answer this question, even if your partner is pregnant and giving birth. The first phase that will be passed is, how to take care of the innocent little creatures that will appear in this world? Different for those of you who have often worked or cared for a baby, maybe more relaxed doing this. But, what about men who have never touched a diaper though?

As time goes by, you will learn how to care for and raise children in your own way. You will also meet other people (friends, relatives, or maybe your own parents) that you can ask for advice, opinions, and life lessons to be a father. Here, you are expected to get an enlightenment that will bring you how to educate a human being.

Never be ashamed or hesitant to ask or ask for help from people who are experienced in answering your questions when they will become fathers.

Why do I feel scared?

Naturally, feeling panic, shock, fear, confusion, or feeling unprepared when you are announced to be a father soon. Because you will meet with a big change, of course, you will also need a large adjustment. So, it is normal for the mood to be changed, much to fear in the future, or even to think that you are not ready for all this.

One thing you need to remember, when you become a father, you cannot pass all the stages at once well. There will definitely be a little wrong or wrong thinking. It's the same situation as when you wonder if you can be a good husband to your beloved wife.
