  1. We have a family history on this topic. The truth is there about the feeling of a father, not a mother, but still.

    Once, when I was not there yet, my mother, father and older sister (who was still small at the time) were going to visit their grandparents (on my mother's side). They called my grandfather before leaving and told him that they were leaving by taxi.

    At this time, my grandfather was running around the apartment, setting the table, wiping glasses and polishing appliances (a big feast was going on). And then, some time after my parents called, he suddenly hit the wall and stopped. My heart began to pound and an uneasy feeling appeared. He caught his breath, and his anxiety subsided. He looked at his watch and memorized the time.

    When his parents and sister arrived, he asked them if anything had happened to them on the road at about this time. And it turned out that at that moment their taxi almost crashed into another car.

    So I think yes, both the father and mother (probably even more so) can feel if something is happening to their child. I don't know if this is always the case, but maybe the nature of the relationship affects it. My mother and her parents are very close, maybe that's why my grandfather felt something then.
