Ihmeideh, Fathi Mahmoud – Early Child Development and Care, 2014
It has been widely recognised that fathers can play a key role in the development and well-being of young children.

The activation relationship theory, primarily focused on parental stimulation of risk-taking along with parental control during exploration, predicts that boys will be activated more than girls by their fathers. This theory may explain why fathers engage in rough-and-tumble play (RTP) with children more frequently than mothers, especially with…

Dubeau, Diane; Coutu, Sylvain; Lavigueur, Suzanne – Early Child Development and Care, 2013

Important social changes that have occurred over a relatively short period of time have resulted in a redefinition of parental roles which supports the…
