Small Study: Father’s Engagement With Infant Son May Help Prevent Behavioral Problems.

HealthDay (7/2, Preidt) reports, “A father’s strong connection with his child during infancy may reduce the risk of behavioral problems later in life,” according to a study published July 18 in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry. “British researchers looked at nearly 200 families and found that children whose fathers were more positively engaged with them at age three months had fewer behavioral problems when they were one year old.”
