Five Things Pediatricians Want Dads to Know About Parenting

This LA Times report has an important message for Dads:  “Pediatricians have a message for fathers: You’re more important to your child’s health and well-being than you — and we — might have realized.”

“After assessing more than a decade’s worth of psychological and sociological research, the American Academy of Pediatrics has issued a new report about fatherhood and the things doctors can do to help the nation’s 70 million dads reach their full parenting potential.

Fathers aren’t just back-ups for moms. Their presence in their children’s lives is beneficial in and of itself.”

President Obama and Bryan Cranston Gives Us REAL Dad Talk

Barack Obama has become increasingly reflective as his term as President winds down. On the impact of his father and mother on his life and his role as a father to his own daughters, it’s clear this man knows what a father is. The President and Academy Award winning actor Bryan Cranston sit down in the Oval Office with the New York Times and discuss parenting in this must read article.  Check it out at http://nyti.ms/23u9qlk.

Mitch Albom: When did fathers become expendable?

A third of American kids now live without their biological fathers. Nearly every statistic on kids turn sour when fathers disappear.

  • Youth suicides, five times higher than average.
  • High school dropouts, nine times higher.
  • Behavioral disorders, 20 times higher.
  • Runaways and homeless children, 32 times higher.

What does a father bring to the table?

  • Strength
  • Quiet confidence
  • Discipline
  • Responsibility
  • Love

— all displayed differently than my mother, which was fine. My father also taught us how to be a husband, how to respect a woman, when to lead and when to support.
