There is copious research supporting the notion that involved fatherhood is crucial for the development of healthy, well-functioning families. In this paper, we review the empirical research on (a) the effects of involved fatherhood on the well-being of children, women and families, (b) the predictors of and barriers to paternal involvement, and (c) how family supportive public and employer-based policy can better support fathers so they can succeed both at the workplace and in their families. We conclude with suggestions for further research, public policy and business practice. (Author abstract)
