What is the role of men in raising children? In a very understandable way, Dr. Evgeny Komarovsky shows the reasons of a phenomenon for which he coined a term - social fatherlessness. He explains how it affects the life of each citizen in the country and its consequences at the national level. Most of the men, especially those who are in the government cannot see the country through the prism of childhood he says. Dr. Komarovsky calls the audience to think of a child-oriented state where the well-being of a family is the main value and the basis for the prosperity of the state.

Evgeny Komarovsky is one of the most famous and most outstanding pediatricians in Ukraine and countries of the former USSR. He is a Doctor of Medical Sciences, television presenter and author of more than 20 books on child care and health and common sense of parents.
