How could small acts by father positively affect a child?

It is sometimes said that it is the little things in life that can count the most. A non-custodial father may not realize just how big a contribution he is making to his child’s life by doing what seem to be very small things. But what small things might make a big difference in a child’s life?

Contained in this article is information describing some very beneficial ways in which attentive fathers typically interact with their children. For example, fathers generally tend to grant their infants the opportunity to explore. It is possible that allowing this freedom helps develop a child’s sense of independence.

A father’s involvement may even affect a child’s cognitive skills. Children whose fathers played ball or peek-a-boo with them had higher scores on cognitive tests than those whose fathers were absent or non-active.

You may think that simply tossing a ball to your child or letting your baby crawl a few extra feet is just having fun. But the small things that a father does can have a dramatic effect on a child’s quality of life.

The reasons a child needs his or her father may go on well beyond what you believe. You are important in your child’s life and every moment you can spend with your child is an opportunity to make his or her life all the better. Your relationship with your child is a precious part of both of your lives.

If you are a non-custodial father who is having difficulty getting the visitation time to which you are entitled, you may wish to contact a Texas family law attorney. The attorney may be able to offer you advice on how to correct the situation. Should the situation call for it, the attorney may even act as your representative in court.
