It was a successful program that has spread across the country and helped not only daughters find connection, love, and support from fathers, but also for fathers to feel important in the lives of their daughters.
They provide their children with critical thinking, motivation, communication skills, and independence that will benefit them throughout their lifetimes. Fathers who spent a lot of time with their kids but are dismissive or insulting tend to have only negative impacts.
There is a lot of variability in father-children relationships. Mothers and fathers both play with their children, but generally they have different play styles again, this is not true across the board.
These skills developed in toddlerhood carry through to later life. Keep them physically close. This time together make children trust more and also make them feel important and evaluated.
