लालयेत पंच वर्षांणि, दश वर्षांणि ताडयेत | प्राप्ते तु षोडशे वर्षे, पुत्रं मित्रं वदाचरेत |
Once a child reaches age 5, father’s job become critical. It is father who is first teacher before child is enrolled to Gurukul/school.
Problem with west is that they don’t have vision of Guru-pita. Pitatulya Guru! Once a child is enrolled to the Gurukul, it is fatherly Guru who takes care of them!! Imagine how mighty generation we can produce when society is blessed by fatherly Guru(s) and Gurukul(s).
Do you have time-luxury or you are done providing material luxury to your children?
As per one study, Children who spend time with their fathers have a higher IQ ! What about those unfortunate urban children whose dads are always busy in career pursuits? Dad leave for the job when children are sleeping and dad return home in night when again children are sleeping! No school or teacher or nanny or toys or games can fill in this vital gap of father’s presence! And same applies to mothers! Do not escape by buying some toy for your children. Spend time as they want more of your presence!
Take care. Spend as much possible time with your children! You are what you are because your parents cared so much of you!
Children who spend large amounts of time with their fathers have higher IQs, according to a new study.
Strong fatherly involvement in their early life can also improve a child’s future career prospects, the research shows.
The researchers warned that it was not enough for parents to live together, but that a father should be actively involved in a child’s life to benefit their development.
The study looked at more than 11,000 British men and women, born in 1958.
The more effort a father invests in his children, the smarter they are as kids and more successful as adults, new research shows. And highly educated fathers make even more of a difference than less educated dads, all things being equal.
“It’s not [just] about having dad around, it’s about what kind of dad he is,” says Daniel Nettle, a psychologist at the University of Newcastle, UK, who led the new analysis, based on surveys of more than 10,000 children over half a century.
