The influence of fathers' involvement on sons' health

Dr. Michael Dadson (Mike Dadson) is highly specialized in the area of father and child relationships. Many of Dr. Mike Dadson’s university years were spent researching fatherly relationships and emotional childhood injury. To read about Dr. Dadson’s research finding on “The Influence of Fathers’ Involvement on Sons’ Health” click here.

Once a newborn arrives, parents realize very quickly the demands to raise a child. However, long months of precious little sleep, and caring for an infant who can’t verbalize needs in language we understand, can take its toll. Most parents don’t have the luxury to spend every moment with their child.

Previously, research into child development did not recognize the significant role fathers played in the development of their children; however, an abundance of research is now confirming the importance of a father’s role in the cognitive skills and long term  emotional well-being of their children.

How can counselling help you and your son?

With counseling, Dr. Michael Dadson can help parents to better cope with the daunting task of raising a child, by understanding their past parental relationships, learning new skills to cope with the behaviour and demands of a young child or a teenager.

If you are looking for a registered clinical counsellor (RCC) with a depth of success and experience counselling in the area of father-child and parent-child relationships, or if you need to address your parenting issues, contact Dr. Michael Dadson.
