The Daddy Factor: How Fathers Support Development

MOEM: Daddy Factor

Learn about the unique and powerful role fathers play in the development of their children. From Magic of Everyday Moments—Series 4.

Being a dad will change your life in ways you never imagined.

The unique and powerful role that fathers play in their children’s lives begins early during the prenatal period. Research shows that when the father is involved in the pregnancy—providing mom with help and support—he is also likely to be involved in parenting later on: reading with his child, performing caregiving tasks, and providing emotional support to the child throughout development.

In fact, the relationship between father and child is important for development in all domains, including physical, social-emotional, and thinking skills.
