Whether it’s physically being there for a baseball game or piano recital, or emotionally being there to provide warmth or support in a tough time, there appears to be a shift in how fathers are viewing their roles.
A father’s depression has a direct effect on both internalized and externalized behavioral problems in adolescents, according to a recent study out of BYU's School of Social Work.
Scholars at Brigham Young University and Princeton conducted research about the stress of parenting. Some stepfathers – those with multiple family roles – experience the highest stress levels.
