Photo by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodriguez ) “The construction of our masculinity has made the role of fathers invisible.” As a part of the TEEN MOM project in the Dominican Republic, we have interviewed Elaine Féliz @elainefeliz1 , a sexual educator and journalist that works to provide the public with access to information about sexual and reproductive rights. She has spoken to us about the role of teenage fathers and why in the Dominican Republic, these young men are often not present. "We have given too much importance to the role of mothers. We have said that there is no one like a mother, that mothers are more competent in terms of taking care of their children. In a sexist society where we teach young boys that all duties related to taking care of children belong to the women, we continue to make the role of the fathers invisible. In this society, the father is simply there to provide his sperm and money for his family. To be a strong man is to also be a good father. We must begin to teach young people that being a good father only enriches your life as a man. They are often blind to the true value of fatherhood." Photo: José Emanuel Mora became a father at 16 years old. Since then, he has worked during the day to help his 16 year old wife as a “motoconcho” (moto-taxi driver) and goes to high school at night to finish his secondary studies. “I also have the commitment to my wife of picking up milk and diapers for my child,” he says. #teenmom #teenfather #teenager #santodomingo #dominicanrepublic photo by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodríguez )

Photo by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodriguez ) This image is apart of the Teen Mom project a series on teen pregnancy in Latin America. This last year has been amazing for the project in exposing the reality of teen pregnancy. I have many plans for 2018 and the start of the year has brought me to the Dominican Republic, where teen pregnancy in the Caribbean has it’s highest rates. I wanted to explore the roles of young fathers in the Dominican Republic, but I found out quickly that this is not an easy task. Teenage fathers seem to be absent from the lives of the teen mothers I met here. Some fathers prefer to not be interviewed and/or photographed because they don't want other women to know they have children and most of the fathers break up with/leave these young women when they find out they are pregnant. The second reason noted above was the case for Juliana Martinez (16 years old), shown in the photograph. She had met the father of her child at 13 in a “colmado” (local hang out/bar) and also became mother at 14. The man used to have Juliana do household chores for him like washing his clothes and washing his dishes. When he found out Juliana was pregnant he abandoned responsibility and no longer speaks to Juliana. When asked where she thought the father of her child has gone she explained that she has not seen him in a while and she assumed he is probably at home with his wife. Juliana said she used to go out a lot before having her baby, but now she is in charge of much more chores and cooks often. Juliana’s days are filled with the everyday tasks of motherhood. On Sunday’s Juliana goes to class from 7 am - 3 pm at her local school and gets help watching her daughter by her older sister. She dreams of becoming an aircraft mechanic or a dentist. #teenmon #latinamerica #tedfellow #dominicana #dominicanrepublic Photo by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodríguez )

Photo by @christian_foto This image is apart of the Teen Mom project a series on teen pregnancy in Latin America. This last year has been amazing for the project in exposing the reality of teen pregnancy. My @ted Talk opened many doors for me and truly brought more attention to this project that is so dear to me. This last year alone, I gave more than one hundred national/international interviews on this subject matter. When I first began this project, six years ago, traditional media did not have teen mom issues in Latin America on their priority list whatsoever, but I knew this was too important to give up on. So for the past six years I have been working hard at highlighting this reality and I am proud to say that my project is proving to be effective in bringing attention towards this issue. New ideas are being discussed with my team and we hope to bring about positive change. I have many plans for 2018 and the start of the year has brought me to the Dominican Republic, where teen pregnancy in the Caribbean has it’s highest rates. I wanted to explore the roles of young fathers in the Dominican Republic, but I found out quickly that this is not an easy task. Teenage fathers seem to be completely absent from the lives of the teen mothers I met here. Some fathers prefer to not be interviewed and/or photographed because they don't want other women to know they have children and most of the fathers break up with/leave these young women when they find out they are pregnant. The second reason noted above was the case for Juliana Martinez (16 years old), shown in the photograph. She had met the father of her child at 13 in a “colmado” (local hang out/bar). The married man was 31 years old. Every time she would go out he would flirt with her and she found herself falling for him. When he found out Juliana was pregnant he abandoned responsibility and no longer speaks to Juliana. Juliana’s days are filled with the everyday tasks of motherhood. She dreams of becoming an aircraft mechanic or a dentist. #teenmom #tedfellow #dominicana #santodomingo

photo by @christian_foto (Christian Rodriguez ) Crossing the wide Carbajal Valley, maintaining it's east-southeast direction is Olivia River. Forming many meanders it is also covered with peat bogs between two chains of the Andes. These peat bogs of Tierra Del Fuego are the southernmost concentration of peat in the world. It's importance lies mainly in the it's capacity to retain carbon, which then contributes to the mitigation of climate change. The worlds peat bogs only cover 3% of our planet's surface, but they contain twice the amount of carbon than our total global forest biomass.

Photo by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodríguez ) Working with your child is not the best choice for every person. Often times it is extremely difficult, seemingly unproductive and very exhausting. However, I really believe it has the potential to be a positive experience for both parent & child! In order to maintain clients and to ensure solid work you must be able to determine beforehand which travel destinations are appropriate for your child to go on. Again I will note that I am from Uruguay yet I live in Mexico. This is not where my family resides, so Salvador has his mother and myself as his main caregivers. Occasionally we have had nannies watch our son, but this is not the norm for us. That is why Salvador since a young age has usually joined me on my work travel assignments. I personally need to have my hands free at most times, so it is important that I properly carry Salva in a way that allows me to do this. Up until a month ago he was held in a carrying wrap in front of me. Now that he is older I strap him to my back so he can see everything in front and around him! Simplify as much as possible. It is important to properly plan and to only pack your most essential gear for the shoot. I prefer to travel light, so I bring compact equipment, my cellphone, one camera lens, sometimes a drone, diapers (so essential), food-snacks & Salvador’s bottle. Weather conditions could change at any moment when you are in a new place so pack some extra clothes. Car sickness is another factor to consider when traveling with your small son or daughter . Your child may feel bad at any moment and you have to be willing to leave and finish at another time. Always use your best judgement and ask yourself whether or not the place is safe. Never risk your child’s safety. I am so lucky to share my passion with my son Salvador. It is truly one of the most special experiences of my life so far. We both learn so much about one another through our traveling and it is the perfect way to spend more moments with the most incredible person of your life.

Photo by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodríguez ) ... ( read previous post ) Lastly, it is important that your trip is productive but it is also very important that it is enjoyable for your child. Although at times it can be stressful and exhausting, try your best to make it fun/interesting for them. For example, Salvador loves to play with suitcases, when we are at the airport I have him ride on my suitcase and he has so much fun! If you travel to a new place locate where the emergency hospital is, save an emergency phone number and have the information of a local insurance company you work with. Feeling prepared like this in case of an emergency will only help lower your stress. Quick tip: try to avoid @aeromexico if you can! Your child can read and mirror your stress/calmness. If you do encounter agitated staff/passengers do not take on their negativity, focus on your child’s comfort levels first. Be prepared again with entertainment plans for your baby, but nothing too different than your usual forms of movies/shows/games. Salvador’s first trip was when he was forty days old and since then he rides a plane one to two times a month! A real jet setter. As your child becomes more familiar with traveling and feels safe things will become easier (almost routine). Take advantage of the fact that up until they are two years old they can travel by plane for free! Check out my next post where I will give you my personal tips on how to work with your child… Until then, buen viaje! #travelwithbaby #toluca #mexico

Photo by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodríguez ) The last few weeks I have received many questions regarding how to travel and work with children under the age of two.  I have decided to go ahead and give my own personal tips on traveling with your child and/or children.  Those of us who have traveled with our babies know that we are the most hated passengers onboard the plane. You only need to read the faces of those around you when you walk slowly down the aisle.  First, travel at night. Especially if you plan to travel more than six hours by plane. This helps to ensure that your child sleeps during the flight. As much as we all love a window seat, choose an aisle seat instead because you will want to get up and down much more than you think. Don’t be afraid to ask, so long as the flight is not full, if the flight attendants can seat you towards the front with more leg room. Make sure to pack several clothing options and whatever else you normally carry in your children’s bag.  Second, most if not all children who travel are under some sort of stress. You are literally changing their routine and familiar places of comfort, these changes will cause potential mood swings. It is important to try to give them those familiar comforts if possible. That is why I suggest at best if the mother is present to breastfeed. If that is not an option make sure you properly plan out the amount of formula to feed to your child. It is imperative that the brand of formula is the same kind you use at home. When the plane is departing and/or landing this is a good time to breastfeed, bottle feed or give a pacifier to your child. Try not to change your babies diet. Planes allow for you to pack and carry your regular food (solids/liquids). Third, pack as many toys and clothes as possible because it is again important to give your child familiarity. The smells and senses will ease your child along the journey. I also suggest giving your child something fun and new to explore! A new book, toy or treat may help your child stay preoccupied for a while during this transitional time.

Laguna Esmeralda ( Emerald Lagoon) is located at the "Tierra Mayor" Valley, at the base of the "Ojo de Albino" Glacier, between Mount Bonete and the Toribio Range. Its waters are emerald green, in marked contrast with the reddish hues of its surrounding peatbogs. The name is given after the color of the water from the thaw. #esmerald #lagunaesmeralda #Ushuaia #trekking #argentina #lifeofsalva Photo by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodriguez )

Photo by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodríguez ) Bridges Island, Ushuaia, Argentina. The original inhabitants of the Isla Bridges were the Yamana, a nomadic tribe that moved between the islands by canoe. The Yamana developed a natural resistance against the sub-Antarctic climate by smearing their bodies with seal oil which may have been the reason why their body temperature was 1 degree higher than humans today. The region was named “Tierra del Fuego “( the Land of Fire) by the early European explorers who saw the dotted Yamana camp fires on the islands throughout the Beagle channel. #bridges #ushuaia #argentina photo by @christian_foto
