It is frightening, but it is a fact that even with the arrival of a baby, even difficult babies can become tame.After the birth of the first child, the father's propensity to commit crimes, smoking and alcohol has been reduced, according to a recent study of 19 years.
The father is an example of a kid
Researchers followed the lives of more than 200 vulnerable children from 12 to 31 years of age and examined how they changed from crime, smoking, and alcohol to marijuana. Although previous studies have shown that marriage can help in the elimination of abnormal behaviors, so far, there has been no evidence of the beneficial effects of paternity. "The decline in predisposition was a manifestation of a natural tendency toward adulthood," said David Kerr, an associate professor of psychology at Oregon State University. "Fatherhood seems to reduce the propensity to smoke, drink, and commit crimes regardless."
The researchers also realized that criminal predispositions and alcohol consumption were reduced to a greater extent in male thieves than in the late thirties and early thirties than in those who died.
"In any case, it is hoped that the incidence of negative behaviors in the birth of the first child is reduced in both younger and older males," Kerr added. "These changes can bring about important health changes for both men and their families."
Research results can help to identify periods of life when people with disabilities are willing to change their bad habits.
"From the results, it seems clear that fatherhood can also bring about a life-changing change in the lives of men who are prone to risky behaviors," Kerr said. "This may give you a chance to intervene, as the New Father is more receptive to behavioral change programs."
A detailed description of the research can be found in the latest issue of the Journal of Marriage and Family.
