Involved Fathers


Involved fathers provide practical support in raising children and serve as models for their development. Children with involved, loving fathers are significantly more likely to do well in school, have healthy self-esteem, exhibit empathy and pro-social behavior compared to children who have uninvolved fathers. Committed and responsible fathering during infancy and early childhood contributes emotional security, curiosity, and math and verbal skills.
Even parenting as a single father this can be accomplished but it isn't always easy. It wasn't until 1995 that Clinton took action and had studies done to measure the affects of fathers in their kid's lives. When single fathers have custody they are just as likely to be invovled with their kids as single mothers... Why - because either way it NEEDS to be done and they love their chidlren too!
