The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly feels that a father’s interaction with his children has a positive influence on their development. Research shows that more fathers are choosing to stay home with their children as more mothers choose to go to work. Even among men who work, the average amount of time they spend with their children has increased in the past decade. Your pediatrician can help you move beyond the stereotypical role of financial supporter and take on a more active role in raising your children.
