A new study on fathers’ involvement with their children reveals that Black men are more active in their child’s life than ever.

Out of the Black fathers who live with their children, 75 percent help with tasks like bathing and diapering, compared to 60 percent White and 45 percent Latino. The study, which involved 3,900 men between 2006 and 2010, also showed that 35 percent of Black fathers who lived with their young children said they read to them daily, compared to 30 percent of White dads and 22 precent of Latino dads.

In addition, the study found that Black fathers who lived outside of the house were at least as involved as other dads who didn’t live with their kids, or more so.

Today, a strange thing happened. Out of the blue, the young ladies at today’s kickoff meeting of the  Girls Rule! / Gompers Fine Arts Option School program, asked me about a workshop I conduct called “The Power of Words.” Apparently a teacher had seen it on NBC and mentioned it to them.

Their questions prompted a brief conversation about how sometimes people use words to bring you down, because they are jealous of a valuable quality you possess, or for various other reasons.  At the end of the discussion a 6th participant said,

“Hmmm….Sometimes people pick on what you think is your weakness, because it’s really your strength.”

How sussinct. These 12 and 13 year olds learned a lesson it takes some years to learn. Girls really do Rule!
