Example text

Swick The challenges of contemporary society have influenced a change in how fathers are viewed and how fathers view themselves (Cabrera et al. 2000). We have moved toward an understanding that fathers need to play multiple roles within the family and thus have increased opportunities to interact and bond with their children (Flouri 2005). We have also broadened our construct of fathering to include the various caring roles performed by significant care givers in the child’s life. It has also become apparent that fathers can play important roles in helping children develop healthy social and emotional lives.

The first session was a workshop that focused on specific strategies for promoting literacy. In the next session, the children would accompany the fathers to provide opportunities to practice new skills. The amount of time and level of commitment for fathers went far beyond the other programs that have been described. It was not clear from the results what the typical attendance was but more than 50 % of the available fathers in two kindergarten classes did participate at some level in this intensive program.

This process occurs through many aspects of father-child dynamics including: role modeling, direct interactions, designing learning environments, and their responsiveness and warmth in relating to and with their children (Batten 2007). The father as an example of caring is perhaps one of the most impacting experiences of a child’s life (Fagan and Palm 2004).
