Fathers who interact with children plant life-changing seeds
On average, fathers spend 6.5 hours per week caring for their children. That's good news for kids because researchers and parenting experts say any time a father spends with his children is time well spent.
"Children feel most safe and secure when they have the love and acceptance of both parents," says Michelle LaRowe, author of the new book A Mom's Ultimate Book of Lists: 100+ Lists to Save You Time, Money and Sanity. "And children who have active and involved fathers tend to do better socially and academically and have less behavioral issues than those who don't."
Donnelle Johnson, 44, can attest to that.
Her father, Donald Painter, worked long hours, and his work took him away from the family's rural Oklahoma home for days at a time. But, Johnson says, that didn't keep her father from being a dad who spent quality time with his children.
