Dad's Day



"One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters."--17th Century English Proverb



Dear Readers,
Today, I've got a special message just for dads...Thank you for being there for your family!
Marvelous things occur because of you being a part of your children's lives. You are their role model, counselor, teacher and the source of strength that your family needs and enjoys. Your importance in the lives of your children can immediately be seen in their eyes and actions.
Your time and involvement with your children creates an influence that can't be measured - though sometimes we try.




Dad's Are Best - Here's Proof
For example, there is an overwhelming amount of data from social research that tells a pretty impressive story.
For one thing, if you are there and involved, those children are 50% more likely to get A's in high school and go on to college.
Not only that, but just having you around, being their friend, your children are over 60% less likely to get into trouble or see the inside of juvenile hall.
And what about your precious daughters? Well, if you are not around and involved, your daughters are twice as likely to become sexually involved at a young age and they have a 70% higher chance of getting pregnant outside of marriage.
The list of positive things that you bring into your children's life is long. It is clear... you make the difference.
As our special father's day gift to you, we've put together a list of dozens of facts and figures all proving how great it is to be a dad.
Take a look. You might be surprised at just how wonderful you are.




Days With My Dad...
Days with my dad were a pleasure and an adventure.
He taught me the value of a hard day's work, how to deal with adversity and how to handle myself in the outside world. His practical way of dealing with life made me believe that I could accomplish anything - from riding a bike to earning a college degree.
Dads, you bring blessings and balance to the lives of your boys and girls. As you'll see looking at our fact sheet, few things give your children a better chance at being happy, successful, and doing great things in life than having you there for them.
The world is a better place because of your love and commitment to your families.
Happy Father's Day!
