Celebrating Fathers encourages dads to embrace play as an integral part of the bonding process in their parenting journey. Research shows that playful interactions with fathers can enhance a child’s self- regulation, social competence, and ability to explore and take risks within a safe environment. These playful engagements often involve unpredictability and excitement, which can boost a child’s resilience and adaptability.

Celebrating Fathers 2024, themed “My Dad, My Playmate,” is a beautiful reminder of the special bond between fathers and their children, highlighting the joy and fun that come from spending time together through play. Fathers play a vital role in their children’s lives not just as providers, but also as playmates and companions.
