Parent Interventions

Night-time co-parenting is in the news. Recent research says infants have the uncanny knack of sensing parental moods when they deem it’s time to wake them up in the dead of night. Parental team work is crucial to promoting the healthy development of a baby. But a strong mother can be a factor for disrupting a healthy parenting relationship than the father who would rather chose to roll on his side and let the baby croon itself to comfort. The study said mothers were more alert and attentive than fathers and this in turn impelled women to have stronger perceptions about joint parenting and the evident indifference of their partners affected the quality of their parenting relationships which infants could sense.
