What is positive father involvement

Healthy families come in many forms. Positive Father Involvement (PFI) is essential.

While it is important for fathers to have the time to be with their children, the most influential factor impacting PFI is the quality of the relationship between father and child.

Positively involved fathers:

Three aspects of PFI


Direct, one on one time with a child


Indirect involvement and availability of the father to the child


Attitude and commitment of a father to their child
