A new study shows that dads respond differently to daughters and sons. When they're with their daughters, dads:
• Sing more to them.
• Speak more openly about emotions, including sadness.
• Respond more quickly to cries.
• Use more words relating to the body (belly, foot, tummy).
• Use more analytical language (all, before, much).
• Avoid rough-and-tumble play.
