The Fathering Project and The University Club of Western Australia
Breakfast by the Bay: The Science of Dad
Dads have a powerful impact on their kids.
The impact that fathers have on the social, cognitive, emotional and physical wellbeing of children from infancy to adolescence and with lasting influences into their adult life should not be underestimated. Involved fatherhood is linked to better outcomes on nearly every measure of a childs wellbeing, from cognitive development and educational achievement to self-esteem and pro-social behaviour. Additionally, fathers who are positively involved in their children’s lives are likely to be more satisfied with life, feel less psychological distress and show more empathy to others.
Join Dr. Bruce Robinson, founder of The Fathering Project and a panel of distinguished business and community leaders as they reflect on their own experiences as fathers and explore the increasingly important role that fathers and father figures have in shaping children’s lives and how these relationships can positively affect their children’s future but change society for the better.
