English & Español (Spanish)
Fatherhood is a complex phenomenon, one which has a huge impact on the growth of children. For some men, bringing up a child is seen as “women’s work,” but it turns out that fathers bring something very special to a child’s life.

Children who grow up with an active father figure are more likely to succeed in life, with fewer social problems, improved learning skills and greater physical well-being. It is said that the greatest gift in life is our children, but the greatest gift we can give to our children is ourselves. Involved fathers bring benefits to children that no other person can easily replicate.

You can make a major difference in the life of your child – just by being a Dad.
