Father’s role in baby’s intellect
Fathers who interact more with their children in their first few months of life could have a positive impact on their baby’s cognitive development.
Dr Vaheshta Sethna from King’s College London, said: “We also found that children interacting with sensitive, calm and less anxious fathers during a book session at the age of 2 showed better cognitive development, including attention,
problem-solving, language and social skills. This suggests that reading activities and educational references may support cognitive and learning development in these children.”
