Parents who regularly kiss each other and have shared interests are more likely to praise their children, new research shows.

A study of 5,000 families has shown couples who feel they have a high level of ‘bliss’ and kiss each other often are likely to be better parents.

Experts say the study confirms that a fulfilled love life leads to more successful parenting and helps reveal what makes a ‘good’ father.

When both men and women consider themselves in a blissful relationship they were seen to praise their children more often instead of shouting at them.

Frequent kissing, spending time enjoying shared interests and a sense of general satisfaction all contributed to a blissful relationship.
