The Dad Difference
Research shows that an involved dad can make a big difference.
Dads have a huge impact on their children’s lives. When kids feel supported, understood, and loved by their fathers, they grow up more resilient and more successful in school.
Here are a few ways having a loving and involved dad can positively affect children’s lives:
- An involved father makes children feel more confident and prepared to tackle life’s challenges.
- A child with a loving father is more likely to do well in school.
- Children who spend a lot of time with dads have fewer problems in school.
Children who have a lot of positive time with dads grow up to be more understanding and compassionate as adults.
