Fathers are vital in the lives of teenage sons

Far too often, a father's role in his child's life is not given its due. And if you are a divorcing father, you may not even be aware of the valuable contributions you make to the health, happiness and development of your child. But when it comes time to craft a parenting agreement, you want to carefully consider both your child's and your own needs. And if you have a teenage son, your presence in his life is especially vital.

There are several ways in which a father can help guide his teenage son. For example, a journal study found evidence that teenage boys whose fathers were involved in their lives were more prone to stand up to bullies and less likely to be victimized. It is believed this is because a boy feels more secure acting bravely if he believes his father will act on his behalf if called upon to do so.

A father can also serve to help his son realize his aspirations. A man can do this by serving as an example of how to exhibit self-control and make good life choices. According to an article that was published in "Psychology Today," a teenage boy's ability to handle his various successes and failures may be significantly influenced by his father.

You and your son should have a relationship that benefits you both. And the fact is that you cannot be replaced in his life. So when negotiating custody terms, you want to make sure that you are able to get the time you need to bond with your son and positively affect his future. And an experienced family law attorney may be able to help you work out a parenting agreement that serves your child's best interests by allowing you to be the father he needs.
