In 2019, the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse oversaw a scan of current research on father and child well-being. The findings reaffirm this profound magic. Positive father involvement is linked to better child health, self-esteem, and social skills. Later in adolescence, kids with involved fathers are more likely to complete their education and engage in fewer risky behaviors. Guys, involved fathers themselves also tend to have better health and well-being, too … so, hey, it’s a two-fer, at a minimum (there are also benefits for our partners, our communities, our country … you get the idea).
