Why Fathers?

A growing body of research over the last 20 years, much of it funded by federal agencies, shows the importance of fathers in the lives of their children.

In fact, more important than the actual time fathers spend with their children is the quality of the interactions. There is little doubt that fathers play a significant role in the lives of their children. Learn more about ‘Why Fathers?’
