Fathers: Warmth, Love, And Acceptance

Recent parenting research has found that a child's perception of his/her father's warmth, love, and acceptance is a significant contributor to the child's overall psychological adjustment.

Too many fathers take the attitude that it is their job to work and support the family and leave the raising of the children to the mother (even if their wives work outside the home).

Fathers, your children need you to be emotionally involved in their lives.

That means spending time, listening, and expressing your warmth, love, and acceptance for them.

Do you have Parenting ideas or secrets to share or have a question?

You can Write to Linda!.

Include your first initial and last name and put the word PARENTING in the subject.

I'll try to use your contribution in a future column.

(Please note that these columns are written several weeks in advance so publishing it will be delayed accordingly.)

Hope this helps tame some of your day-to-day little beasties.
