We all know what it can mean to a kid to grow up with an awesome dad. That’s why for Father’s Day this year we put together this list of some of the top 5 benefits kids can get from growing up with a dad in their life.
Kids that grow up with involved dads are more likely to:
1. Get a degree
Kids who grow up with present dad are much more likely to get a college degree. It’s true look it up.
2. Be Law-Abiding
Crime rates are significantly lower for kids that were raised with involved fathers. Having a dad in your life can be an active force to keep you on the straight and narrow.
3. Marry and Have Kids
Example is important, and growing up with happy parents shows children that marriage and family can be a fulfilling part of life.
4. Have Direction in Life
It helps to know where your going in life, and having a dad to turn to for advice can make a difference.
5. Differentiate Assertion & Aggression
Knowing the difference between assertion and aggression is important and is often taught by dad. Standing up for yourself and your needs without unnecessary aggression is a skill that will take you far in life.
