Dad’s Rejection Can Lead to Social Anxiety Later in Life

Not only is mom’s love toward their children important, so is dad’s. Women are very capable of nurturing their children without the presence of dad in the picture, but the absent of dad does have a lasting effect on their offspring. Both parents play an essential role in their kids’ physical, psychological and social development.

Penn State researchers claim that healthy relationships with parents play a significant role in children’s well-being and development. They also point out that rejection from fathers can cultivate feelings of loneliness and social anxiety in teenagers and children.
