When Dads at Play: Let Dad Be Dad!
And while sometimes mom might want to scream or cover her eyes, now there’s affirmation that, as long as kids are happy and enjoying themselves, our goofy teasing and horseplay make for a healthy father-child relationship.
Dr. Kathryn Kerns, a Kent State psychologist, conducted a recent study to assess the interaction of both moms and dads with their children. She found that the “random, sometimes silly play” of dads encourages children to trust their fathers, and can even predict “the quality of a child’s future friendships, social skills and romantic relationships.”
So, there you go, moms, let dad be dad!
