The Targaryens are not the only family in Westeros.In a new podcast from HBO, Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin talks about the different Targaryans and what it means to be a Targa."They're a bunch of people that are the bastard offspring of a Targaran, and it's a very interesting concept," Martin said."But you don't have to look too far into the books to understand that.There's so much mo...
A father’s job is to care for his children.
A mother’s job, on the other hand, is to take care of herself and her children.
It’s an oft-repeated narrative that women are the caregivers, the mothers are the breadwinners.
But what is it that makes one parent and the other parent so different?
A new study suggests it’s not that fathers have to take on more responsibility.
It’s that mothers are just as much caregivers as their fathers.
In fact, the study found that mothers have far more of an emotional connection to their children than fathers do.
The study, titled “Fathers and Mothers’ Emotional Connection,” found that fathers tend to have more emotional support for their children, while mothers tend to rely more on their children’s emotional needs.
In the study, the researchers compared the emotional closeness between a mother and her child, compared to the emotional support she gave to her own child.
The researchers also looked at how mothers and fathers responded to different emotional triggers in their children.
For instance, the scientists looked at the emotional response of a mother to a child’s crying and the emotional responses of a father to a crying child.
They found that when a mother responds emotionally to a young child, she will respond emotionally to the crying child as well.
The researchers also found that there was no difference in emotional closiness between mothers and their children and fathers.
And the researchers found that both fathers and mothers had more emotional attachment to their kids than their children did.
“The fact that mothers and dads had the same emotional closess to their child does not mean that they were not both caregivers,” said study author Amy McLean, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of New Mexico.
“It does mean that mothers were more emotionally attached to their own children, and fathers were more attached to theirs.”
While the study did not look at fathers and daughters, the findings could have important implications for fathers and their sons, who are often perceived as less emotionally involved.
McLean said that while both fathers’ and mothers’ parenting styles are important, they are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
For example, a father who is a good parent may not necessarily care for the same level of emotional closness as a mother.
The authors of the new study also noted that, in the United States, fathers do not often have children in their lives.
Mclean noted that fathers do have some parenting styles that are very similar to mothers, including their emphasis on child-rearing and the emphasis on their own parenting skills.
McLeans research has shown that, for example, fathers may tend to take more care of their children while they are younger, while their mothers are less likely to do so as they grow older.
“One of the reasons why fathers tend not to have children is that the traditional values that fathers hold about their role in their family are more important than what they actually do in their families,” McLean explained.
“In the same way that a mother may do things like have a car, have a house, and a family, a dad may be doing things like having children and having the responsibility for their care.”
The study was published in the journal Developmental Psychology.
