Happy Fathers Day! Naturally, I bring to you information on the science of being a dad!
Typically, we hear about the science of being a mother… and how important the mothers are for the children’s growth and development, etc. I mean, biologically, the mother even supplies the main “bulk” of the zygote. They carry the child in the womb. There’s undoubtedly a lot of evidence on research on the role of mothers in raising children.
And often, fathers are simply regarded as those who “bring home the bacon.” But their role in raising children goes farther than that. Check out the latest On Point with Tom Ashbrook interviewing Paul Raeburn, author of “Do Father’s Matter?“. Fascinating stuff on how father’s contribute more than just their DNA.
