Two recent studies of the importance of fathers for the development of children

From Real Fathers for Justice:

Boys with Absent Dads Experience Developmental Delays, UK StudyAccording to the British study, young boys who were denied a meaningful relationship with their father while they were growing up experienced significant developmental delays compared to their peers.

The researchers suggested it was possible the stress associated with not having a father around could have an effect on adolescent hormones and delay puberty.

Boys with absent fathers were also more likely to have had at least one child by the time they turned 23 compared to those whose fathers were still at home by the time their sons turned 16.

And from a Canadian study (Concordia University):

Engaged dads play pivotal role

“Compared with other children with absentee dads, kids whose fathers were active parents in early and middle childhood had fewer behaviour problems and higher intellectual abilities as they grew older — even among socio-economically at-risk families,” she says. (…)

“Regardless of whether fathers lived with their children, their ability to set appropriate limits and structure their children’s behaviour positively influenced problem-solving and decreased emotional problems, such as sadness, social withdrawal and anxiety,” continues Pougnet. (…)

Greater impact on girls

The study found girls to be most affected by absentee dads, although the researchers caution that paternal absence can foster other problems such as lack of support or discipline.

“Girls whose fathers were absent during their middle childhood had significantly higher levels of emotional problems at school than girls whose fathers were present,” says Pougnet.

Another round of scientific confirmation of the common sense realization about the destructiveness of Parental Alienation and PAS for the development and future adult life of children.
