Changes in parenting styles have given men more options for responding to obligations as fathers, husbands, or partners. According to Bright Horizons, current research reveals that warm accepting fathers tend to have children with higher self-esteem. An affectionate and nurturing father-child relationship furthers the development of children’s achievement, peer popularity, and personal adjustment.
