to recent research, we know that children whose fathers are highly involved
with them in a positive way do better in school, demonstrate better psychological
well-being and lower levels of delinquency, and ultimately attain higher
levels of education and economic self-sufficiency. Given the importance
of fathers spending time with their kids, why is it that while teenagers
watch an average of 21 hours of television per week, they spend only 35
minutes per week talking with their fathers?
Spend time listening and talking
with your kids each day.
