Being a good parent and role model is hard. And for parents living in poverty, it’s even more difficult. They may not know where their next paycheck is coming from – or worse, they may not know where their next meal is coming from. Every day, we work with fathers around the world to overcome these challenges, while helping their children reach their full potential. This Father’s Day, Save the Children celebrates the fathers who are making a difference and taking an active part in their child’s life.
A Snapshot of Today's Dads
Save the Children knows that fathers who are involved with their children change their lives. As fathers become more involved in the care of children and domestic work, children’s health and development improve, positive parenting increases, and parents’ health improves. That’s why we encourage active engagement of fathers and other male caregivers in the lives of children.
Statistics gathered from the Pew Research Center, the U.S. Census Bureau and Fatherhood.org.
