Results of a recently published study shows that there is universal agreement among family researchers that engaged dads make a significant impact on the long term success of their children, in terms of behavior, mental health and academics.

What can dads do:

Be aware (dads make a critical difference in their kids' lives)

Be informed (check out for advice and encouragement)

Be engaged (you must be present to win)

Be in touch (verbal and physical affirmation)
