Being a father is not an easy job, especially if they’re trying to juggle a family and a career. But as it turns out, there is nothing to worry about — research shows that fathers are actually spending more and more time with their kids. Additionally, according to a survey, 73% of dads say, “A real man knows how to express emotional support to his children.” We’re happy to hear about this and want to show you some evidence of this love.
More Shout has found charming photos that capture the precious father-child connection which helps us remember and appreciate how meaningful this relationship is.
