The Benefits of Bonding
May 10, 2017
Parental bonding is one of the most important predictors of a child’s eventual health and well being. Those earliest moments with Mom and Dad set the stage for a lifetime of thriving, or not. By helping provide more bonding time with fewer worries (like finances and job security), PFL can help more parents and children realize the benefits of bonding. Children especially have been shown to exhibit more signs of emotional security and well being when they have plenty of time to bond with mom and dad, which are primary indicators of a child’s capacity to adapt, grow, and ultimately thrive in society.* And those are just a few of the benefits for children – moms and dads stand to gain a lot as well! We’ve compiled more information below to illustrate the importance those early months play for both baby and parents.
