Fathers are not just financial supporters!

Parent Interventions

Researches on the role of fathers in child rearing and its benefits to infants, point towards the inescapable and necessary duty of fathers in shouldering the rearing of children. Providing tender affection and care to children are undeniable rights of fathers too.      

It is confirmed that fathers have that peculiar edge over mothers, with the distinctly deeper tenor of their voice and 'the rise and fall rhythm' of their chest. The satisfaction and comfort of these help the infant to sleep peacefully.

Active involvement of a father in bringing up children by nursing and caring for them calls for training on the various responsibilities of nurturing. Traditionally, considered to be the obligation of mothers, fathers were kept out of this sphere.

Actions to be initiated in the families include: sharing of duties at home and related to children, father and mother freely discussing and communicating the concerns, anxieties and troubles about their baby, remembering and learning from the experiences the couple got from their fathers, and mothers supporting fathers with demonstrations of infant-caring ways.         


Eventually, as father of the baby gets more engaged in the upbringing of the child, he would realise  the significance and advantages of this accomplishment.
