Let’s look at the father’s situation in Slovenia. I summarized most of the information from the local newspaper.
According to the Statistical Office, there are 500,000 fathers in Slovenia. 313,000 reside in a family with children, others live separately from their children.
Less than 10% of fathers were present at childbirth in 1992. The trend has grown regularly over the years, with 25% of fathers present in 1995 and more than 50% in 2000.
In 2014, 78% of fathers were present at childbirth. The highest share is present in the West and South regions, and the lowest in the North-East regions. I will try to take care of a good percentage in my region. However, there is no record of how many fathers faint during childbirth in each region.
The average age of fathers living with their children is 49.7 years. Which is 3 years more than it was in 2002. It is quite logical that fathers are getting older in all these years as well.
In 2014, there were 48 fathers under the age of 20, each 11th father was 40 years old and the oldest over 60 years old. So I can hide myself to a safe average.
Last year, every 12th father lived in one parenting family.
The average age of a father is 33.4 years, which is four years more than forty-four years ago. In this section, I am below average so you can call me ”young daddy”.
There are 4.7% of families composed of fathers and children in Slovenia.
Fathers spent an average of 12 minutes a day with their child in 2002, below the EU average.
I plan to spend more time with my baby alone, if not sooner when we make Lego cubes.
I hope this statement did not lift Nina’s pressure and possibly trigger bumps!
