Fathers’ Roles in the Care and Development of Their Children: The Role of Pediatricians

This report from Michael Yogman was published in July 2016 issue of the American Academy of Pediatrics.  This report reviews new studies of the epidemiology of father involvement, including nonresidential as well as residential fathers. The effects of father involvement on child outcomes are discussed within each phase of a child’s development. Particular emphasis is placed on (1) fathers’ involvement across childhood ages and (2) the influence of fathers’ physical and mental health on their children. Implications and advice for all child health providers to encourage and support father involvement are outlined.
