Lower income dads active in their kids' health
Date:10/13/2011

e, monkey do. So, if I do things correctly, he automatically thinks that's the right thing to do."

"I make sure he eats good," said an unmarried father named Gregory. "If he wants to snack on something, I'd rather give him some fruit to snack on instead of candy."

A father named Vincent from Chicago noted, "I exercise a lot, so he tries to exercise with me. He's not big enough to do certain exercises, but he tries. And I think those day-to-day care tactics will help him maintain pretty good health."

But when it came to navigating an emergency room with his daughter, a dad named Dante said the situation was scary, because he was used to his wife handling things. Another dad admitted giving his daughter soda and cookies, although he knew he shouldn't.

Also concerning, about one third of the fathers didn't give the recommended dose of medicine to a child. "I try not to use it as much as the label tells me, "said a dad named Vincent. "I try to use it as least as possible."

"What we need to do is meet these men halfway," Garfield said. "In pediatrics we play lip service to dads being involved, but we could do a better job of working with them. They come with the best of intentions, but don't know what they should be doing. From the first visit with a newborn in the nursery to a checkup with a teenager, health care providers can encourage dads and show them ways to positively interact with their children."
