It's Your Day, Dads!
Updated: May 12, 2021
Hope Grove Psychiatry wishes a Happy Father's Day to the dads in our readership. Sometimes you may not realize how important you are to the development of your children. Research shared by The Fatherhood Project shows that fathers reduce behavioral disruption in their children, especially sons, and boost emotional well-being, especially in their daughters.
As this recently viral video shows, research has also demonstrated dads promote cognitive functioning (thinking, school performance and vocabulary development) in their kiddos, too!
Your unique brand of parenting as a father is an invaluable resource to the family. So, keep up the hard, rewarding work and enjoy celebrating today!
