Accept No Substitutes

Mothers are not and never will be surrogates for fathers and vice versa. Weak men and women as well as death and other things may force us to rear children alone but the roles assigned by God don’t change and remain necessary. We have to avoid the Eurocentric trick of teaching us that the disintegration of family in our communities is acceptable. (Imani)
