Did you know that children whose father is present show greater cognitive abilities? That daughters with an absent father are more likely to suffer from depression?

Dr. Paul Vitz, Professor of Psychology at Divine Mercy University, discusses the positive impact of present fathers and the negative inpact of absent fathers in his talk entitled “The Importance of Fathers for the Family.” Dr. Vitz’s talk was sponsored by the Psychology Dept. at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
