This article aims to determine the involvement of fathers in developing early childhood social-emotional development. By content, this article uses the literature study research method for initial preparation in compiling a research framework for obtaining data. Based on the results of data analysis, previous research found that the absence of fathers in caring for and caring for children will cause psychological stress so that it affects the child's social-emotional development. The results of research on father involvement state that children who are cared for and cared for by fathers tend to have positive personalities such as being ready to compete, having high self-confidence and being able to take risks. Therefore the success of a child cannot be separated from the father's involvement. Children who are cared for and cared for by fathers are ready to compete in the future by having confidence and being able to take risks.
