I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the real dads out there (as opposed to those who have fathered a child but have never done what a dad does). We live in a world that downplays the importance of a good father, which is detrimental to kids, marriages, and society as a whole.
A loving, involved father means better grades, less use of drugs, less trouble at school and with the law, and later start to having sex. A good dad also means children are more likely to marry, and more likely to have a good marriage. In short, dads are important.
