Nollywood Actress, Damilola Adegbite has advised single mothers not to deprive their children of their father's love.

Listing the categories of single mothers, she asked that mothers assess the reasons carefully not to be despised by their children in future.

She noted that some fathers want to be in the lives of their children and they should be given the chance.

Her message reads;

"There are 3 categories of single mothers:

The ones whose children’s fathers cannot be in their life (E.g Dead, incarcerated etc)

The ones whose children’s fathers have abandoned them or who do more harm than good being a part of their lives (E.g Cases of domestic violence)

And then lastly, the ones who intentionally keep their children/child away from their father because they are angry, bitter, hurt, and vengeful.

To 'category 3' mums, today is a good day to reassess the situation. There are many awesome fathers who genuinely crave to be in their children’s lives but are not allowed to by their moms. Trust me, I understand how you feel. Please soften your heart towards them and make decisions based on what’s best for your child. Let their fathers in as much as possible. They won’t be babies forever and you will not always be able to keep them separated from their father. May our children not grow up and blame us or despise us for depriving them of their fathers love.

Happy Father’s Day to all the AMAZING dads. You are loved and appreciated."
