Guest: Anthony Parnell, Executive Director and Co-Founder, Fatherhood Support Network Nearly one in four children in the US live without their father, according to the Census Bureau. Kids raised without a dad are more likely to end up in poverty and to have substance use and mental health problems. But not all absentee fathers want to be absent. That’s where the Fatherhood Support Network steps in –their program is designed to inspire and empower dads to be actively involved in the lives of their children.
