SUMMARY

Explodes the myths of neglectful, uninterested, abusive, deadbeat, & lazy dads with real-life studies & statistics. Explains why the largely negative portrayal of fathers in books, in movies, & on TV is both inaccurate & harmful, training young boys & girls to see men as having little or no role in the family. Examines the achievements of both the men's & women's movements in reevaluating the roles of both sexes. Complete with steps that men, women, employers, the med. community, the media, & the gov't. can take to promote men's involvement in their children's lives. A comprehensive look at how our society can experience the benefits & joys of active fatherhood.Ross D. Parke is the author of 'Throwaway Dads: The Myths and Barriers That Keep Men from Being the Fathers They Want to Be' with ISBN 9780788196850 and ISBN 0788196855.
