Fatherlessness: Help Me Take a Stand on Breaking the Cycle

Jun 27, 2023 / Miscellaneous     

In the early 1990s, there was a national debate about whether fathers were important or not in the lives of their kids.  Of course, we all know that fathers play a huge role in their children’s upbringing.  We conducted and found many studies that clearly revealed that fatherless kids were more likely to live in poverty, do drugs and have problems in school.  Former NFL coach Tony Dungy and I talked about this serious issue and launched All Pro Dad in 1997—hoping to equip and encourage men to love their kids well.  Read more about how All Pro Dad began and how to Help Me Take a Stand on Breaking the Cycle of Fatherlessness.
