Dads are important in teens’ lives, says a new study from Penn State University.  It makes sense. The teenage years are wrought with complexity and having a trusted adult – especially dad – to simply be there and spend time with has got to be good for kids.

Thanks to all you dads out there who do make time to be with your teenage kids and make a positive difference in their lives.

    Why do alot of adults want men to be fathers, and be responsible for their kids, yet if guys are single and talking to a kid or teenager that they must be doing something wrong or a “sexual
    offender”, even if this is not the case?

    I think that the media assumes that adult males are pervy, yet adult females are motherly &
    responsible? Why is there such a double-standard?
