    Dads who spend more time with their kids are happier at work, according to a new study published in the journal the Academy of Management Perspectives. “More involved fathers experience greater job satisfaction and work-family enrichment, and less work-family conflict; and they are less likely to think about quitting their jobs,” write the study’s authors.
