Patrick Patterson, Senior Manager of ICF International on behalf of the National Fatherhood Clearing House; and a dad from new campaign video. I also talked to dad Derrex Brady. They were great and shared why it is so important for father's to be a part of their children's lives. Check them out below. I love these ads from the Ad Council.

You can hear them today on 1070 AM WDIA at around 3:50 or so.

Did you know?

Multiple studies have found that the positive and active presence of fathers plays a central role in their children's lives. Children who feel close to their fathers exhibit better cognitive and social functioning, including increased self-control, self-esteem and empathy. Overall, having an involved father significantly contributes to happier and healthier children; and this is true whether the father lives with his child or not. There has been a massive growth in father involvement over generations. Fathers now spend nearly triple the amount of time with their children than fathers in the 1960's - not only playing with their children, but actively involved in their day-to-day care and nurturing, like helping with homework, reading, and taking children to doctor visits, among others. And, dads today still want to be more involved. About 1 out of every 2 dads (48%) say they don't spend enough time with their kids and feel compelled to do a better job at parenting.
