What is the difference between a present father and an engaged father?
It wasn’t until I met this week’s guest that I had ever really thought about that question. I’ve spoke on occasion about the statistics that clearly show the detrimental effects of not having a strong, influential male figure in the life of a child. Until I had this conversation with my new friend Ken Gordon,I really hadn’t thought about how just being present, and truly being engaged in a child’s life, differ so greatly. Do you know the difference between a present father and an engaged father?
