Six Ways Dads Influence How Their Kids Turn Out

Sunday is Father's Day.  If your kids are bad at remembering it, you can help them by pointing out all the ways you made them what they are today.  Here's a good list from 


1.  Fathers can make their kids grow up smart.  The way fathers talk when they play with their kids can have an important effect on language development.  And infants who have involved and nurturing fathers grow up to have higher IQs. 


2.  Fathers can determine when their daughters become sexually active.  Not by grounding them until they're 40, although that would work in theory.  When fathers are absent in their daughters' lives, the daughters tend to lose their virginity earlier in life. 


3.  Fathers can influence how well-behaved their children are.  Depression in fathers of young children is linked to behavioral problems when the kids are older.  And kids whose fathers are involved in their lives are less likely to get in trouble at school. 


And here's something interesting: rough-housing between fathers and kids can help CONTROL bullying behaviors later.  The theory is that it teaches children how to manage their aggressive impulses without losing control of their emotions. 


4.  Fathers influence their children's eating habits.  One study found that the number of times a father ate fast food was the biggest influence on how often his children ate it.  And children of authoritarian fathers are also more likely to eat junk food. 


5.  Fathers can determine how popular their kids turn out to be.  Children with an involved father are more confident and emotionally secure, and they tend to have better social connections with their peers. 


6.  Fathers can also have a special impact on their daughters' future success.  According to research, fathers who believe in gender equality are more likely to have daughters with high career ambitions.

    But it may also stem the tide of money leaving the country. On Monday, oil prices slumped to lows not seen for five-and-a-half years. Timberland Outlet online US benchmark crude West Texas Intermediate traded at $55.91 a barrel, while North Sea Brent crude traded near $60 a barrel. Both markets have fallen by almost half since June. If you're David Beckham or Lily Allen you may be used to this type of VIP treatment, Timberland Sale but if your fame is more limited, or even non-existent then you might find this attention rather disconcerting.
