Thank you to all the Dad’s out there!
Research shows when fathers are involved in the lives of their children, their children learn more, perform better in school, and exhibit healthier behavior. Even when fathers do not share a home with their children, their active involvement can have a lasting and positive impact.
According to findings from the National Health Statistics Report by the CDC, when fathers and father figures are actively and regularly engaged in children’s education it:
- Encourages children’s exploration of the world around them and confidence in their ability to solve problems.
- Increases a student’s attendance. Increases student participation in school activities.
- Reduces the chances of delinquency and substance abuse.
