Why Be Married? To Be a Great Dad

Fathers matter so much to their children. If you're reading this blog, I know you care a lot about your marriage. You have no idea how delighted this makes me. Loving your children's mother is the number one thing you can do for those kids.

We moms often think we know best about raising children, but dads are important because they have different goals and different approaches to raising kids, not in spite of this.

Most of our presidents have been fathers, too, and the last two have supported the idea that great fathers are a most important part of a great nation. For this reason, we have a nationwide government program to help dads improve their game.

Father's Day is June 19th this year. If you would like to take your fathering up a notch before then, check out the fatherhood.gov website for lots of resources for fathers, step-fathers, new fathers, and experienced fathers ready to help other men be better fathers. Use the map there to find programs for fathers in your area. Don't forget to sign up for email updates, too. Be sure to see the Dad2Dad section for a list of non-government forums for dads, too.

Thanks, Dad, for all you do for your kids and for your country.
