Research shows kids with involved dads experience incredible benefits. Here are just a few of them:

  • greater intelligence
  • emotional health
  • confidence 
  • even compassion

DADS ARE IMPORTANT! 

But, moms, listen up: You are the gatekeepers to a father's relationship with his children. You can make or break it by allowing or denying access to kids, starting at childbirth. We may not like it when Dad lets our kids try dangerous stunts or go out looking like a mess, but kids need fathers and what they have to offer. So, Mom, step aside and let Dad do his thing!
