Preschoolers with actively involved fathers have stronger verbal skills.
Radin, N., 1982, “Primary Caregiving and Role-Sharing Fathers,” in Non- Traditional Families: Parenting and Child Development, edited by M. Lamb, Hillsdale, NJ: Erlbaum, pp. 173–204.

 

Children with actively involved fathers display less behavior problems in school.
Amato, P.R., and Rivera, F., 1999, “Paternal Involvement and Children’s Behavior Problems,” Journal of Marriage and the Family, 61, 375–384.

 

Girls with strong relationships with their fathers do better in mathematics.
Radin, N., and Russell, G., 1983, “Increased Father Participation and Child Development Outcomes,” in Fatherhood and Family Policy, edited by M.E. Lamb and A. Sagi, Hillside, N.J.: Lawrence Erlbaum, pp. 191–218.

 

Boys with actively involved fathers tend to get better grades and perform better on achievement tests.
Biller, H.B. 1993, Fathers and Families: Paternal Factors in Child Development, Westport, CT: Auburn House.

 

Research shows that even very young children who have experienced high father involvement show an increase in curiosity and in problem solving capacity. Fathers’ involvement seems to encourage children’s exploration of the world around them and confidence in their ability to solve problems.
Pruett, Kyle D. 2000. Fatherneed: Why Father Care is as Essential as Mother Care for Your Child. New York: Free Press.

 

Highly involved fathers also contribute to increased mental dexterity in children, increased empathy, less stereotyped sex role beliefs and greater self-control.
Abramovitch, H. 1997. Images of the "Father" in The Role of the Father in Child Development. M.E. Lamb, Ed., New York: John Wiley & Sons.

 

When non-custodial fathers are highly involved with their children’s learning, the children are more likely to get A's at all grade levels.
National Center for Education Statistics. October 1997. Fathers’ Involvement in Their Children’s Schools; National Household Education Survey. NCES 98-091R2. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Department of Education.

 

Nonresident father contact with children and involvement in their schools within the past year are associated with the same three factors: fathers paying child support; custodial mothers being more educated; and custodial homes not experiencing financial difficulties.
National Center for Education Statistics. October 1997. Fathers’ Involvement in Their Children’s Schools; National Household Education Survey. NCES 98-091R2. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Department of Education

.

High involvement at the early childhood level - frequency with which parents interact with their young children, such as how often they read, tell stories and sign and play with their children. These experiences contribute to children’s language and literacy development and transmit information and knowledge about people, places and things.
Bredekamp, S. and Copple, C. 1997. Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs. Washington, D.C.: National Association for the Education of Young Children.

 

 

 

In honor of Father's Day just a quick reminder of the crucial role fathers plan in the day to day raising of their kids. Without a father in the home or at least engaged on a daily bases, a child is at a huge disadvantage.

Hey I know let's actually get to the point with specifics so we don't have to do this long drawn out bullshit over semantics.

Like, why do you have 10,000 posts on a messageboard when you could be more involved with your kids and newborn?

Or, what was that crap about Obama's speech about overcoming obstacles and the situation you're dealt? He overcame them, so why don't these kids do the same?

I sit with my kids every night and oversee their homework.

They both made honor roll.


Strange how that works.

would also like the thread hypocrisy addressed

If Obama can overcome his situation and become the POTUS then so can these "disadvantaged" kids. So really its a non-issue. What is your solution, more government?

It's sad when you are defensive and offended by the statement that fathers play a crucial part in a child's life.

He may not have had a father in his life and takes it personally.

Is this actually about spending more time with one's kids? If so I agree. 

 

I feel there are ulterior motives at work though.

I run my household in a conservative manner.

 

You can't coddle kids and help them with their homework.  They have to pick themselves up by their bootstraps and learn their work on their own.

 

Otherwise they become reliant on parental assistance and will just vote for the same fathers over and over again so they don't have to learn algebra on their own.  They will just suck the parental teat and have no motivation to learn on their own anymore.

 

I provide no parental assistance to my children.  Why should my hard earned money go to a child that does not contribute to the household economy?

 

Sure there are some societal deterrents that make it difficult for my children from getting employment like child labor laws.  but the way I see it the Olsen twins had a 500 million dollar empire by the time they were 18.  So don't tell me it can't be done.  If I feed and cloth my children they will never become the Olsen twins because it would be too easy to accept my assistance.  They just want a parental handout!

 

After all who would know more about raising kids then me?  Sure I don't have any of my own, but I have known a couple kids before and my friends tell me all about them.
