Just some of things that dads have a great deal in influencing:
1. Higher SATs and IQ tests? Dads have a huge impact on kids and their language development...and when they do... smarter kids!
2. Want your daughter to stay "abstinent" longer? A lot of it has to do with the confidence girls feel...thanks to their dads. More confidence, less risk taking.
3.Popularity...kids who have involved fathers have better social connections with their peers.
4. Acting out. Kids whose dads were depressed while mom was pregnant are more likely to have emotional and behavioral problems at age 3.
5. Your daughter becoming president? Dads who believe in women's rights are more likely to have daughters with high career ambitions.
