One surprisingly good thing about the COVID pandemic is that
parents who work from home have had more time to spend with
their children. And it is scientifically proven that children benefit in
mind, body, and spirit when they have more positive connections
with their parents. Fathers, in particular, have embraced the
opportunity to spend time with their children during these current
events. The wholesome, loving energy between a father and a
child has been linked to more flexible thinking and increased
tolerance of others. To better understand the many ways rituals
can nourish children, Positive Psychology Podcast Host, Lisa
Cypers Kamen speaks with two experts whose work reflects the
benefits of family gatherings, Armin Brott and Dr. Anne Fishel.
Armin Brott delves into why the role of a father is important in a
child’s development and Dr. Fishel describes the significance of
family dinners in helping children thrive.
