The Role of the Father

The role of the father was not considered in early attachment theory and research, which tended to focus on mother-infant attachments. More recently researchers have focused on the importance of the father in infant development and whether they have a distinct role. One key finding is that fathers have a different role in attachment, one that is more to do with play and stimulation, rather than caregiving.
