Want children who think you’re their hero and also have a healthy sex life? Simple: pick up after yourself, do doggy-do patrol and leave the toilet seat down.
If Dad helps, so do the children
What’s more, children of dads who do their fair share of the cleaning will help with housework themselves. And, says the study, these children are likely to grow up more socially aware and better adjusted. They’re also more likely to have friends and less likely to be depressed or withdrawn at school than their counterparts whose fathers don’t help out around the home.
