Simple measures can help fathers and children bond

Children benefit immensely by having a strong bond with their fathers. Fathers can provide children with a sense of security and help elevate their self-esteem. But building a solid relationship is not always easy, especially if a father and child have a limited amount of time to spend together. And if you're a father who is sharing custody of a child, you want to make sure that you are able to build your bond regardless of your time constraints.

There are many simple, yet important things you can do to help draw yourself closer to your child. For example, whenever possible, take an active role in your child's interests. If your son likes music, take him to a concert. If your daughter plays softball, get out your glove and play catch. It doesn't matter what form these interests take; what matters is that you participate in these activities and share experiences with your child.

While doing things together is fun and can create many bonding moments, it is also important to simply talk to one another. And when discussing things with your child, being a good listener can pay big dividends. Just let your child tell you about whatever is on his or her mind, be it triumphs in the classroom or frustration with friends. Over time, if you remain an active listener and choose the right times to offer advice, your bond will become solidified by trust.

Parenting is a proactive proposition that involves the dedication of one's time. But what happens if the time you have been given by the court is being denied by the child's other parent? Well, if you are facing this problem, you might want to get in touch with an experienced fathers' rights attorney. An attorney can act on your behalf to see that your custody or visitation rights are honored so you and your child can have the bonding time you both deserve.
