UK: Princess Kate champions the importance of fathers in children's early years

Article here. Excerpt:

'The Princess of Wales is set to turn her attention to the importance of fathers in children's early years.

Kate has met a number of fathers' groups amid plans to raise awareness about the role men play at the beginning of youngsters' lives.

She has consulted experts in the sector to find out how best to highlight the issue, as well as how to attract more fathers to parenting groups and support their mental health.

Research by the princess's Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood found that only 19 per cent of the population could identify the period between pregnancy and the age of five as the most important for shaping a child's future. While one in four women did, this was matched by only 14 per cent of men.'
