The Difference Dads Make

Men influence their kids not by simply being there, but by being Involved, Active, Nurturing and Playful dads.

Many studies across the globe have researched how dads influence a child’s psychological and social development. It’s huge.

Studies are suggesting that by adopting certain qualities men influence the development of their kids at all stages of their life. In particular:

INFANTS – have higher IQ’s, better language and cognitive capacity.

TODDLERSstart school with higher levels of academic readiness.

ADOLESCENTS – have better verbal skills, intellectual functioning, and academic achievement.

Involved, active, nurturing and playful dads will help their kids have:

Greater problem-solving skills

Better grades and more qualifications

More school enjoyment

Better school attendance

Fewer behavioural problems at school

More resilience

More curiosity and trust

More  life satisfaction

Less depression and emotional distress

What do you need to be  involved, active, nurturing and playful?

The specific qualities, attitudes and behaviours to be more involved, active, nurturing and playful are described in 10 Qualities of a Good Dad which you can find here.
