It seems many people think that it's the responsibility of mothers to take care of the kids. So, under the thoughts of "no time" and "don't know how to play with kids", there's little time to accompany kids for fathers. But in fact, Dads have many advantages to parenting, and sometimes even better than moms to take care of the children. Lately, many puericulturist which were invited by Parenting in America pointed Dads have many advantages to look after kids. |
Dad knows how to take moderate risks
Protecting the kids is the motto for most moms, but Dads hold the different opinion. Will who is the father of a 4 year-old girl said, kids should learn to try new things, but it doesn't mean facing the real risks for kids, such as burns and scalds; We can teach her to climb the fence, and meet her desire of taking corozo buttons from the desk by standing on a chair and let her feel what will happen when objects lost balance, then avoid danger in time.
It's important to learn to try new things and take moderate risk. There will be some risks when kids learn a physical activity. If kids afraid of wrestling, they will not be able to learn anything and will be more careful, then don't do things that are not sure.
Dad is more informal
There are always many rules and standards when mom takes care of the children. Moms pursue perfection for everything because of the sense of responsibility. This will make moms overwhelmed and the kids will have great pressure, too. Compare with moms, dads will choose the different method. Perhaps, they wear the clothes inside out or wear unpaired stockings for kids, but who cares if the kids feel happy and warmth?
Dad is more like a child
Dads seem good players natural; they can always find the great ideas to play with the kids: a virtual match, a simulative musical instrument and a wooden spoon acts as a microphone; those can make the children happy. Those methods look dandiacal, but just can be made by fathers; mothers always point the "mistakes" of children.
Dad is patient and knows to wait
What would you do when your child cries? Moms always eager to soothe, but dads are more patient. As a father, James has experienced the different of this: if child cries when taking a bath, he would give some time for child to adjust the water environment, just need to wait for a while by the side. At this time, his wife worries or just picks up the child and soothe.
In fact, when the child frustrates, moms are difficult to bear, while dads are willing to let children experience a little frustration because this will let them learn to face the problems. This looks impersonal, but it's the special way to love kids and is better for them to face the real world.
The unique parenting above is another way to recognize the world for kids, cooperating with great maternal love, the course of growth of child will be healthier and happier.
