DAD! You are important

logo

When dads are positively involved:
Children do intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically better than their peers without dads;
They have a stronger bond with their fathers;
They handle stress and difficult situations better;
They are more relax and curious and adapt more easily;
They have better self-control and more positive relations with children of their age;
They are healthier.
When fathers are absent, children are more likely to experience:
Sadness to the point of depression and even suicide;
A feeling of emptiness which children try to fill with substance abuse, gangsterism and early sexual activities which could lead to teenage pregnancies and HIV/AIDS infection;
Anger which often result in violence and criminal activities;
Poverty and Health related problems.
