What we don’t know about fathers
Our fathers are such important figures in our lives, and so much of this is really out of our choice or control. We cannot choose our parents, but we can love them as they are and try to give back a little of what they gave to us. Also, here are 3 interesting facts about fathers, that you may not have known.
Did you know that…
- A study done at the University of North Carolina found that in terms of genetic makeup, mammals are more like their fathers than their mothers. Even though we get the same amount of genetic mutations from our parents, we actually use more of the DNA we get from our dads.
- A recent study found that dads’ voices tend to stay steady when they’re talking to their children, and they pretty much talk to their kids like they talk to adults. But as speech scientist and the study’s co-author Mark VanDam pointed out, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, in doing so, dads are actually giving their young kids a sort of “conversational bridge” to the outside world.
- Researchers from the Freie Universitat in Berlin found that male nightingales prove their family values through song. It was found that the better the singing, the more supportive and protective the male would be towards their family.
