The importance of dads in a child's well-being

31635281_S.jpgIf you are a father facing a divorce in Kansas with one or more children, you will no doubt want to find out how you can remain connected to your children during and after your divorce. Even if you and your to-be former spouse are able to cooperate positively to reach agreements on how you will divide up your marital assets, the topic of how to share time with your kids can be a difficult one.

One thing you should remain convinced of is how important you are to the healthy development of your children. According to Focus on the Family, there is a large body of research that points to the long-term benefits of a child's well-being when the father is an active part of raising them. One sociologist from Rutgers University explains that some of this is due to the inherently different ways women and men parent.

Dads are more likely to encourage risk taking through rough play. This, in turn, helps kids develop resilience. Men also place emphasis on fairness, justice and duty which can provide a good framework for kids to develop within. More than eight out of every 10 studies conducted over the last 40 years relating to dads' involvement in their kids' lives highlights the extensive positive outcomes of maintaining these relationships.

If you would like to learn more about how and why you should work hard to remain engaged in your child's life after getting divorced from your partner, please feel free to visit the father's involvement with children page of our Kansas family law website.
