The day-to-day life of a family with a child with autism can be very stressful and burdensome. But when the couple is supportive of each other, coping with the disorder becomes much easier. Every family member benefits from this healthy relationship. Empathy, compassion, and kindness cultivate a peaceful atmosphere in the home.
Kids who’s dads participated in reading or singing to them, playing with them gave better results than dads who didn’t. Same goes for dads who took their kids to their appointments (doctor’s, therapist’s,…). Briefly, dads who are more involved in their kids’ day-to-day life commitments and challenges, their kids showed better results.
