Htun Htun Aye, 35, used to be a typical Burmese style father. "I thought my children had to be afraid of me, or they would never listen to me or respect me. I love my children, but I kept it inside. I never let my love show to them, ever."
“If I can give other parents the gift of hope for their future, and their children’s future, and the tools to lay that firm foundation for their children to stand on, then I will have begun to give as much as was given to me.”
Mothers wean their babies from the breast in a matter of weeks, so they can return to work sooner. But they don't give them a good quality formula instead. They can't afford it, and they don't know the difference.
