Daddy Time Essential for Babies

If fathers don't spend time with their newborns, according to a British study by the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC), the children may face "emotional and behavioral problems," an article in the English newspaper The Guardian reported. "Previous research has highlighted the importance of a mother's involvement when a child is small, but the EOC says this is the first study to confirm that the close involvement of a father also has a significant impact on a child's future," the paper said.
