Daddy Depression

Doctors know that postpartum depression can effect a mother's relationship with her child, but what about depressed dads?

New information suggests that happens too. This, after studying over 12,000 new fathers with some degree of paternal depression after the birth of their new baby. While most fathers pull themselves out of that depressed state, British researchers at the University of Oxford found the trouble may linger with the child...that a depressed dad was linked to behavior problems in their children by age 3, particularly in little boys.
