How do you imagine a military serviceman? Very strict, disciplined, conservative… Probably yes! What about caring, emotional, devoted to his children? Probably not! But often enough, people are much more than the social stereotypes about them.
That is exactly the case of Pavel Nikov, 42, father of Paola – 4 and half years old.
I have just quit a well-paid military job for a less-paid one in the same field, that would at least give me more time with my child
– says Pavel on the eve of Father’s Day.
In his view, it is not fair for parent to have to make a hard choice between their career and the need to take care and spend more time with their children. These, according to him, are two equally important roles – but parents need to be supported in order to better balance between them.
