Father and Son Relationship

Father and Son Bonding

...

Babies, and children younger than two years of age, often express preference for the mom over the dad. However, this changes between the ages of two and four when children start to look upon the dad as a partner in play. Young boys, especially, look upon their dads as heroes and try to imitate the way they talk, dress, and act.

Here are some of the reasons for the father-son bond:

  • Shared empathy: If little boys enjoy special closeness with their fathers , part of the reason is the common biological identity that they share. This mutual identification results in the development of a strong empathy between them.

  • Role modeling: Dads play an important part in the development of their sons. The role of the father is, in fact, an important counterpart to the one played by the mother. Little boys look to their fathers for a representation of what 'manliness' means; this influence remains with them even as they grow up to become fathers themselves.

  • Nurturing and authority: Being called upon to assume the father's role is a challenge. It compels men to review and redefine who they are themselves. In this sense, sons influence their fathers, by inducing them to develop their own sense of caring, responsibility, and paternal authority.

Best Parenting Advice - Part I


Here is a compilation of all the great parenting advice that we received from readers over the years.

Parenting Advice #1: Lock your bedroom door.
Some people put a cowbell on their kids' door. Just don't count on hearing a knock before you hear the worst words, "daddy, what are you doing to mommy." A lock is very cheap insurance.

Parenting Advice #2: Take thousands and thousands of photos.
With digital that's easy to do. The trick is to edit them so that your computer isn't storing thousands and thousands of pictures. Garry Winogrand, the great 20th century black and white photographer died with 2500 rolls of undeveloped film. He shot and shot and his skill was in finding the diamonds in the rough. With kids, this is doubly important since they rarely sit still for perfect images. The more you shoot, the better chance you'll capture the real them.

Leave a loaded camera on the kitchen counter and be ready for every photo opportunity. The worst camera to have is the one you don't have with you when the perfect shot happens. Rather than buying a super-duper camera, the best dad photographers have a fairly cheap point and shoot camera that's small enough to keep in a pocket and always at the ready.

Parenting Advice #3: Learn how to juggle.
Juggling amazes small and even big children. It's something you can teach them later and it's a basic dad skill.
Parenting Advice #4: Kiss y...
