    Father’s Day is just around the corner and presents a great opportunity to appreciate all that fathers do. This month, Heritage’s FamilyFacts, which catalogs social science findings on the family, religion and society, highlights recent studies that demonstrate the important role fathers play in the lives and well-being of their children. Read the findings on why fathers matter or watch my video.

    One Response to Why Fathers Matter

    1. Larry Cook, Rogersvi says:

      Thank You Christine. I have always believed in the old addage, 'it all starts at home'. Both parents must be involved with their children. That is how they learn the life skills nessessary to interact with others properly. Dad teaches boys how to act as men should and he teaches the girls of the family what she should and should not accept in a man as proper and respectful.
