Importance of the father / child relationship

As a father, the relationship you develop with your son or daughter is very important to them. This bond is built through the care, time, and attention you give to your child.

Just like mothers, fathers have some things to learn before feeling comfortable in their new role. Believe in yourself! Find activities that you like doing with your baby, and together, take the time to get to know each other. The bond you build with your child will grow over time.

Children’s relationships with their father have an effect on how they relate to other children and adults.

But both parents should agree on family rules. A shared approach to discipline will be valuable for years to come. Parenting is easier when the parents can count on each other’s support. The whole family benefits.
