In this episode of Blended Fatherhood, host James Ferriss discusses the importance of father involvement in the lives of children. He acknowledges that this is an important topic and will be delved into more deeply in future episodes. He explains that children who feel close to their fathers are more likely to have successful outcomes such as entering college or having stable employment after high school. They are also 75% less likely to have a teen birth, 80% less likely to spend time in jail, and about half as likely to experience depression symptoms. Father involvement can have drastic changes in the life of a child, and this is why it is so important for parents to stay engaged.
