Dads today are more emotionally available and involved

Fascinating data from a recent BYU study indicating that most fathers today are actively involved in their kids' lives, perhaps due to shifting norms about masculinity. Great news! 🙌🏼 “Fathers continue to navigate changing social expectations,” said Lee Essig, another co-author of the study and BYU graduate student. “As current social trends are pushing for men’s increased familial involvement, we see more fathers stepping up to engage more actively in their children’s lives in various ways. As we teach boys and men to be more emotionally aware and cultivate emotional well-being, these men and boys will be able to become better fathers for their children, as they will be able to provide for them not only through financial contributions, but by being emotionally and mentally present for their children and their wellbeing.” https://news.byu.edu/news/study-today’s-dads-are-engaging-more-their-kids
