Expat Fathers Uninvolved?

That is the question that I have tried to tackle over at Expat Child this week. Here is a snippet of that article.

“Research has been published regarding the uninvolved father. The United States Child Welfare Department has issued findings that children whose fathers were involved in their lives have higher cognitive development, feel more emotionally stable, and are less likely to get involved in drugs or violence. It also found

that boys with involved fathers had fewer school behavior problems and that girls had stronger self-esteem. .

Are the TCKs whose fathers are absent for several weeks at a time doomed?”

If you want to read the rest, head over to Expat Child where you will find the full article.

  1. Interesting question! I think being absent does not necessarily mean uninvolved, being present does not automatically make a father involved either. Although it is definitely more difficult to be involved if you are not present.
