Fathers sometimes underestimate their role. Loving, actively involved fathers contribute to the well-being and development of their children by strengthening their self-esteem. For example, this can be done by helping them discover the world through games and books.
The presence of a caring father helps his child – boy or girl – become more self-confident and reach his full potential. By taking an active role from the moment your child is born, you help create a bond that will last for years to come. Here are a few things you can do to improve your relationship with your baby: Take care of your baby, change his diapers, bathe, rock him and put him to bed. Play and enjoy with her. Show her your affection.
Tell other parents about your child, share baby photos with your friends and tell them how proud you are! Taking an active role in organizing family life also strengthens your relationship with your child. You can do this by keeping track of your child’s medical history, assigning a babysitter, taking your child to swimming lessons, cooking, or contributing to family income, for example.
