 More Dads are Getting Involved With Their Kids
Dads are more involved with their kids than ever, a recent government survey has revealed.
The study found that 90 percent of dads who have kids younger than 5, help them to use the toilet or getting dressed several times a week, Discovery News reported.

Over 90 percent of the fathers ate meals with their kids several times weekly, while 66 percent read to them.

According to the study, 66 percent helped their kids with homework, while 50 percent took their kids to activities.

It was also found that kids with involved fathers fare better academically, behaviorally and nutritionally.
