Why does the father leave the "nest"?

Why does the father leave the "nest"?


Raising the family totally changes things. Usually, the new parents share their tasks, but also the areas of action. It is likely that if men were better than women at children, God would have chosen them to bear a pregnancy and be born. However, he otherwise distributed the roles and certainly did not do it by chance. Most of the time, the man's desire to be a father is more a social act than taking on a future responsibility. Of course, fathers love their children, but I think that, until they are born, the man unconsciously feels the need for someone to bear his name and to leave his inheritance. Because all instinct guides their actions after the birth of the child, only this time it is no longer the one of multiplication, but that of preservation.
The man would like that when everything goes through a radical transformation, nothing will change for him. But at home, this is no longer possible. Drawn by the screams of the little boy, less willing to adapt to a radically changed reality, he leaves "in search of food." Under the pretext that he must bring money to the house, he slowly moves away from it under his mother's skirt, which is a big mistake, since the child fits exclusively in the hand of women. And here they are in parks, in toy districts, in restaurants, on the street, screaming, clutching toys that do not belong to them, crying uncontrollably, kicking their feet, exercising a small blackmail, still innocent.
