On June 19, Dr. Greg Mallis from the Pine Rest Southwest Clinic in Grandville was interviewed by Maranda for her show, Maranda Where You Live (WOOD/WOTV). The topic was “The Important Role of Dads and Father Figures“.
“Fathers provide stability, support and learning opportunities,” said Dr. Mallis. “A lot of research is showing that spending quality time with fathers (or father-like figures) helps to increase the emotional intelligence and problem solving abilities of our children.”
The most important thing to take away is that there is no perfect way to be a father, but there are a million ways to be a really good one. What’s important about being a father is making sure you’re providing love and care to your child as much as possible.
