Paul Raeburn’s “Do Fathers Matter? What Science Is Telling Us About the Parent We’ve Overlooked”


Guest: Paul Raeburn

In his new book Do Fathers Matter?, PAUL RAEBURN examines the often-overlooked role of fatherhood. He debunks some of the stereotypes of dads (no, they’re not all inept or aloof) and looks at the importance of fathers in the development of their children. Today, Marty hears from Raeburn on the growing scientific research on the ways in which men influence their kids, what fatherhood looks like in the 21st century, and his personal journey as a dad.
