Father-Infant Interactions: A Review of Empirical Research.
Ricks, Shirley S.
Family Relations, v34 n4 p505-11 Oct 1985
Reviews empirical research dealing with father-infant interactions in the intact family. Results indicate fathers provide an extra source of stimulation as well as unique experiences for their infants. More similarities than differences exist in father-infant interactions as compared to mother-infant interactions; however, fathers exhibit more physically arousing and vigorous play with their infants than do mothers.
