WIFI believes all children should develop the early reading skills needed to succeed in school and adulthood. Because parents are children's first and most important teachers, we further argue that fathers should be given the tools and encouragement needed to focus on developing their children's reading skills. This brief describes several program evaluations that demonstrate 1) parents can be taught how to effectively read with their children, and 2) children benefit academically from reading with their parents. We also provide important program adaptations to consider when implementing father-focused literacy programs. (Author abstract)
