dads and kids pluses

Four decades of research and hundreds of studies have proven what should be obvious to everyone: The more involved a dad is, the more successful his children will be. And in our case our children will be happy in two times more. A father's influence can determine a child's social life, grades at school, and future achievements. Do you share my opinion?

The dad effect starts as early as birth. A review of studies by the Father Involvement Research Alliance shows that babies with more involved fathers are more likely to be emotionally secure, confident in new situations, and eager to explore their surroundings. As they grow, they are more sociable. Toddlers with involved fathers are better problem-solvers and have higher IQs by age 3. They are more ready to start school and can deal with the stress of being away from home all day better than children with less involved fathers .

At school, children of involved fathers do better academically. For example, a study by the U.S. Department of Education found that children of highly involved fathers were 43 percent more likely than other children to earn mostly As and 33 percent less likely to repeat a grade. They are also less likely to have behavior problems at school and to experience depression.

According to researches, girls with involved fathers have higher self-esteem, and teenage girls who are close to their dads are less likely to become pregnant. Boys show less aggression, less impulsivity, and more self-direction. As young adults, children of involved fathers are more likely to achieve higher levels of education, find success in their careers, have higher levels of self-acceptance and experience psychological well-being. Adults who had involved fathers are more likely to be tolerant and understanding, have supportive social networks made up of close friends, and have long-term successful marriages.

One study finds that involvement in everyday activities, such as eating dinner together, watching TV, playing in the yard, and playing video games are even more important to share with Dad than big outings or trips, although those contribute to children's development as well. Fathers and youths in the study experienced more satisfaction and cohesion in their family when fathers were involved in everyday core activities.

Although participation in balance family leisure activities is important and needed, it was fathers' involvement in the everyday, home-based, common family leisure activities that held more weight than the large, extravagant, out-of-the-ordinary types of activities when examining family functioning. Fathers have unique and complementary roles in the home. Fathers encourage competition, independence, and achievement.

By asking parents of 390 families how they play with their children,it was found that in infants and toddlers, fathers' hallmark style of interaction is physical play that is characterized by arousal, excitement, and unpredictability.

Where in traditional families mothers tend to worry about their children's safety and well-being, fathers encourage their children to take risks. research found that dads are more likely to encourage their children to overcome obstacles, to talk to strangers, and to go in the deep end during swim lessons. One study in the review focused on a group of parents teaching their children how to swim. It found that fathers tend to stand behind their children so the children face their social environment, whereas mothers tend to position themselves in front of their children, seeking to establish visual contact with the children.

Perhaps it's their size, strength, or inclination to protect, but fathers appear to be better at keeping predators and bad influences from harming their children. in The Atlantic, paternal absence has been cited by multiple scholars as the single greatest risk factor in teen pregnancy for girls. When fathers are more involved, they can better monitor what's going on in their children's lives, including interaction with peers and adults.

Fathers discipline with a firmer hand. Fathers tend to be more willing than mothers to confront their children and enforce discipline, leaving their children with the impression that they in fact have more authority. Mothers, on the other hand, try to reason with their children and rely on kids' emotional attachment to them to influence their behavior. Think children with two dads are relly more happy ;) :cheer: :)

The good news about being a dad is that you don't have to be spectacular at it to make a major positive contribution to your child's life. If to look at data on delinquency, pregnancy, and depression in adolescents and compared the statistics with how the teens rated their fathers.
