On a Tuesday morning, Rizky Palapa and his wife Dea Locita visit their daughter’s preschool, Rumah Main Cikal, in Serpong, South Jakarta. Rizky has asked his company for permission to arrive late to the office because he wants to tell a story to his daughter and her classmates.
The storytelling session is part of Rumah Main Cikal’s celebration of National Father’s Day, which falls on Nov 12. The school invites the students’ fathers to take part in storytelling, cooking and sports events.
After the event, the couple sits down with The Jakarta Post to share their view on modern-day fatherhood, and their strategy in sharing parenting responsibilities. (JP/I Gede Dharma JS)
