Father’s Day is around the corner and we want to discuss the love and relationship between a father and his children.
Science studies fathers
Parents, in general, have such huge impacts in the way children view life around them. Parent- child relationships are vital. These relationships are strong determinates in the way children interact and form relationships with others. Each parent party is just as important as the other; however there’s a presence that can only be felt in the company of a father. Just as a mother’s role is irreplaceable, so is a father’s role. Studies support that when fathers or responsible father figures are involved in the life of their children, kids experience better performances in education, learn more, and exhibit healthier behavior.
