A formative, family-friendly factoid from a recent study or survey in the news.
BY John Lilly
recent survey of 15,000 new parents by Babytalk magazine, more
than 60% of fathers reported that their wives give them less attention than
they got before the baby was born. And, while 42% of those men say they understand
this change, 44% admit to feeling jealous, sad or resentful about the
re-ordered relationship. But wait. New dads aren’t so selfish or childish that
they’re needier than their own babies. Many feel guilty about having the
negative emotions — and a whopping 80% agree that a mom should put her child
ahead of her husband, at least early on.
