A couple of week ago, I wrote a column about the cost of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder to our society and to the children involved. The column spoke about the damage done by a mother’s drinking during pregnancy.
I got a very interesting e-mail soon after that column ran asking why the father was not mentioned at all in it. The writer wanted to know where the father was and why society was not holding him as responsible as the mother, why society was not blaming and shaming him the way a mother is.
The writer asks very good questions
