Parenting rewires your brain, and his too!

I thought this was pretty interesting. Apparently when men actively parent it awakens things in their brain, making them essentially have the same feelings women do such as nurturing.

This makes me wonder, if the guys who don't actively parent are stand offish because their brains haven't been wired this way? Or do they not actively parent because they haven't activated those areas in the brain?

I'm not sure my questions makes sense. I guess I am wondering if there is a physiological reason that absent parents never bond all the way with their children.

What do you think?

Oh, and the link of course:
