It’s so nice to have a happy and complete family. Having this kind of life is one of the most wonderful blessings we can receive from the Lord Most High. Having a family also means having children of your own.
Who wouldn’t want to have his own offspring or offsprings? It is a unique experience and indeed the unforgettable moments that have been the mark of our being a father or a mother.
But do you know that children are more active when they look like their father? According to one study, fathers who look like their children are influenced and affect how they become a father or a parent to their child.
Explained by Professor Solomon Polachek in “Medical Daily”
“Ang mga tatay na kamukha ang kanilang anak ay mas sigurado na anak nila ito, kaya mas ginagamit ang oras kasama ang baby,”
Indeed, the care and guidance of their father are a very important part of a children’s life. The care of their fathers improves their health.
Researchers observed 715 families registered with “Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing” (FFCW), these children living with their mothers only. Even though their fathers are far away and still serve as a “paternity cue” for making their time investment decisions.
The researchers explain.
“Napag-alaman namin na bumuti ang child health indicators kapag kamukha ang tatay. Ang pangunahing paliwanag ay ang madalas na pagbisita ng ama para magbigay ng oras sa pag-aalaga at pagbabantay, at pag-alam tungkol sa kalusugan at mga pangangailangan ng bata,”
According to the study, mothers are naturally caring for their babies whether they look like them or not but for fathers who look like their child has a significant impact on the children’s ‘child development outcomes’.
