{Latest Fatherhood Stats}

As the time for releasing Raising a Father (the book) draws near, I've been thinking alot about where the country stands on fathers in the home, and what direction we're heading. I decided to conduct an online survey, via ZenMangoamong 510 adults between 18 and 64 years old to see how Americans felt about fathers taking responsibility and being a bigger part of their childrens' lives. The results were astonishing! Take a look at some of the statistics:

Is a top of mind issue for me

42%

Is one of the bigger challenges that must be fixed to rebuild our society

We are more aware of this issue since the advent of the new President

62%

80%

45%

Expect today's brands to promote the image

91%

I was thrilled to see so many individuals concerned about the issue, most espcially the percentage of men who are more aware of the issue since President Obama took office (80%). Have you seen a difference in attitude toward the issue?
