What are the current findings in research on fathers? Fathers today tend to be truly satisfied with life and truly satisfied with their role as fathers. However, fathers also talk about having very intense stress and thinking that they really know how to deal with stress. In some ways, that kind of begs the question: If that's part of the socialization of fathers to be able to deal with their own problems without seeking a lot of help. Fathers can benefit from help by connecting more with other fathers, by creating more social support, by seeking help, and by really learning and believing that they can be effective fathers, competent fathers, and be the fathers and the men they want to be.
