   actively engaged in their lives do
   significantly better academically
   than those pre-teens with
   uninvolved fathers.

✓ Highly involved fathers increase
   their children’s economic and
   educational attainment. 

✓Mothers in two-parent households
  report fewer behavior problems
  among children with involved
  fathers compared to children with
  detached fathers.

  reduce emotional stress for
  teenagers making the transition to
  adulthood.
