A recent survey by charity Focus on the Family of 350 fathers found that fathers spent more time with family during the pandemic, in particular during the recent phase two (heightened alert).
It also found that the top three factors that would support fathers in being more involved would be to have more time to spend with children, flexible work arrangements and to be able to manage children's behaviour and problems well.
The study showed fathers are becoming more involved and adept at meeting the needs of their families, said Focus on the Family.
