Increased anxiety

The research on how a father’s involvement impacts a child’s wellbeing found that children who grow up with absent or under-involved fathers are more prone to depression and anxiety. One can easily see how growing up with a single mother could lead to an anxious disposition in sons in many ways. They may feel they need to be the men of the household from a young age, taking on emotional responsibilities that are too much for children. Or, if they had fathers who were present but emotionally unstable, that could create an anxious environment where children often feel they must be on their best behavior to avoid an outburst from dad.
