Dad's Role

Dad with son on porchDads and other important men like grandfathers and uncles can make profound contributions in a child’s development. When fathers with a positive attitude are affectionate, spend time with their children and are involved in their children’s daily activities, their children have fewer behavioral problems, perform better in school, are more sociable and have better self-esteem. What kind of dad will you be? Here are some things to help you get off on the right track:

  • Define your role by being a consistent partner in caring for your baby. 
  • Create unique rituals for you and your child. 
  • Make time for both work and family. 
  • Maintain a relationship with your children even if you don’t live in the same home. 
  • Communicate with your child’s caregiver.
