CHGD’s Volling discusses issues facing working dads

Dr. Brenda Volling, Director and Research Professor, Center for Human Growth and Development, recently spoke with WalletHub about issues facing working dads and how young fathers can find balance between career and family.

According to Volling, “Men often want to be there for their children right after their birth and in their early years, but struggle with balancing their responsibilities as provider and earning an income with their responsibilities as a parent?”

She reminds us that, “We would do well to help young parents manage this time with supports in place so that they can eventually return to work in good health and not completely stressed.”
