In this series, I dug into the importance of dads in human relationships. I learned that #Dads need to be present, engaged, and involved. How having a dad around affects you (for better or worse). That meant exploring what it means to be a dad, whether the kids same-sex parents are any different than those of different-sex parents, how children physiologically change their parents brain, and whether toxic #masculinity and machismo is harming your kids.

Caring for infants is associated with increased reproductive success for male mountain gorillas

Although these predictions are generally met, in some promiscuous primate species males overcome this by identifying their offspring, and providing benefits such as protection and resource access.

Bowlby’s Evolutionary Theory of Attachment
The theory of attachment was originally developed by John Bowlby (1907 – 1990), a British psychoanalyst who was attempting to understand the intense distress experienced by infants who had been separated from their parents.

THE ONE WITH THE THREE KINGS (*Britney’s toxic music plays*)

Fathers’ Paternity Leave-Taking and Children’s Perceptions of Father-Child Relationships in the United States

The Sick Social Cycle (this was created by someone from my undergrad and I took this EXACT "workshow" when I was learning about it!)
In escaping a perpetrator’s aversive behavior, the victim unintentionally reinforces that aversive behavior.

A fresh look at paternity leave: Why the benefits extend beyond the personal
Fathers who take leave help their partners, their families, and themselves. In this era of employee mental-health challenges, companies should take notice.
