4.Father’s role in parenting: builds decision and life skills

In the video above, we can see a daily night routine of a dad with his daughter in which he helps her pick out an outfit for school, thereby providing her with a sense of independence alongside avoiding tantrums for the next day.

From the viewpoint of a stay-at-home mom, dads today play a crucial role in raising kids. Today, nearly all dads help with diaper-duty, a significant leap from just over half of them in 1982. Since 1989, there’s been a 70% increase in the number of dads staying home to take care of the kids while moms go to work. Dads are also taking more time off when their babies are born, with the number of dads taking paternity leave going up four times since the 90s.

The intimidating father figure of the past has been replaced by an approachable and trusty friend. Fathers help teach important life skills like making decisions and dealing with challenges. Their active involvement in daily activities, like playing, reading, and helping with homework, provides kids with a role model to look up to and learn from.

Having a dad around means kids get more support and guidance, boosting their confidence and independence. The increased presence of fathers in the family strengthens family bonds and imparts valuable lessons about relationships and responsibility.

Hence, today’s dads are more involved than ever, enriching family life and helping kids grow into confident, capable individuals
