Podcast: The research on father involvement and impact on child development

In this episode we are thrilled to be joined by Professor Natasha Cabrera where we discuss the research on father involvement and the impact on child development – what the research says about the modern father and how it’s transformed over time.

Dr. Cabrera studies parent-child relationships, exploring the roles of fathers and mothers, predictors of effective parenting, children’s social and emotional development in diverse family and cultural contexts, and the impact of early experiences on children’s cognitive and social development.

This episode speaks volumes into the work we do at The Fathering Project and why we do it. We encourage you to have a listen.

As we approach Father’s Day it’s a very important reminder on the impact of fathers.
