“It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons”

– Johann Schiller

Often eclipsed by Mother’s Day, Father’s Day can be an easily forgotten and just plain underrated affair. This Sunday, 15 June provides the opportunity to pay tribute to Fathers, whether paternal or otherwise.

At Street Talk, we strive to facilitate honest discussion and often that entails going to prickly places. Be it motherhood or fatherhood, parenting is not easy, as these young parents can attest to. In this episode, five teenage fathers and mothers talk about how having children at their age has affected their lives. Parenthood, as one young mother puts it, is about sacrifice.

Happy Father’s Day!
