Being a dad is probably the most important job you’ll ever do

The way you behave with your kids will have a big effect on them – what they do, how they feel about themselves and how they turn out. As with anything that is important to you, being a dad deserves your time, energy and effort.

Studies have shown that kids whose dads spend time with them and are interested in them do better at school, are happier and more confident and have higher self-esteem.
