Fathers urged to talk to their babies

www.grub4life.org.uk today reports that babies whose fathers engage positively with them at three months old have fewer behavioural problems at the age of one, finds a new study. 25-07-2012

Researchers from the University of Oxford studied 194 families to determine whether a father’s early interaction with his child had an effect on their behaviour later on in life.

The findings showed that children whose fathers were more engaged in the interactions had better outcomes and less behavioural problems. However, children whose fathers were more distant, lost in their own thoughts or interacted less with them were more likely to have behavioural problems at 12 months old.
