I-LABS research helps debunk “myths about fathers”

        A recent Huffington Post story by Ellen Galinsky of the Families and Work Institute reports that a White House Conference on Working Fathers was a long-time coming but in the end, it was worth waiting for. Held on June 9th, it revealed that there is still a lot of confusion around men and their roles and we need a reset on what we actually know, especially when it comes to how we perceive parenting styles and responsibilities among the different genders. Families and Work Institute helped to launch recent discussions about working fathers and cited important research that helps debunk the myths and stereotypes about dads. Dr. Patricia Kuhl’s research shows that children learn to speak best when parents — both moms and dads -- use a sing-song voice, stretching out the sounds of words across two octaves.
