Overview

In Father and Child Reunion, the author demolishes conventional wisdom about the nature of fatherhood and shows how the courts, media, and government create a vast array of subtle, immensely powerful undercurrents that separate men from their children.

Anyone who cares about fatherhood and parenting, anyone interested in the legal and emotional issues that divide fathers from children, anyone viewing fatherhood from the perspective of a journalist, social worker, or lawmaker, and especially any single, married, or divorced parent needs to read Dr. Warren Farrell's thoughtful and challenging book.

Dr. Farrell has drawn on research from around the world to uncover paradigm-shifting findings:
--Why studies show that both boys and girls who grow up with single fathers do better psychologically, socially, and academically than those who grow up with single mothers.
--What distinguishes a mother's instinct from a father's instinct, and why children benefit from both
--Surprising discoveries on the impact on children of stepparents; of one parent's moving a child away from the other; and of a parent's bad-mouthing the absent parent.

With evidence from court cases, law enforcement records, national statistics, and therapeutic case studies, Dr. Farrell illustrates how the judicial system, media, and government often make an enemy of dads. He explains how fathers enjoy virtually no naturally assumed parenting rights within the legal system and how, even in other, less typically confrontational arenas--such as our school system--a wide range of unreported forces divides fathers from their children.

For all its explosive conclusions, Father and Child Reunion ultimately calls for a rejoining of families and of children with parents who can care for them. Dr. Farrell has written what may be the most significant book on perhaps the most important issue facing men, parents, and families today.

Editorial Reviews

Bettie Youngs, Ph.D.
Stunning in its eloquence, thorough in its research, and passionate in its plea for valuing the soul that fathers bring to the heart of a child's well-being. This is simply an important book. A book of hope, comfort, and insight, but most of all, it offers solutions to restoring the spirit and healthy functioning of families.
Howard Halplern, Ph.D., Past President, American Academy of Psychotherapists
Father and Child Reunion shakes up my way of looking at the embattled world of fathers and families. Farrell's counsel is wise; his advice, sound and specific.
Jack Canfield, Chicken Soup for the Parent's Soul
I come away from this book not only inspired to be a more involved dad, but with a much deeper understanding of exactly what I do that is helpful to my children, and why. It is brilliant, originalo, and inspiring.
John Gray, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus
Father and Child Reunion introduces us to the nurturing side of fathers through a masterful blend of original ideas and hard data. It will inspire and persuade dads to become more involved with their children--a benefit not only to kids, but to moms as well.
Kyle Pruett, M.D., Professor of Child Psychiatry, Yale
Of Farrell's many terrific books, Father and Child Reunion is his best. Wonderful advice, crystal clear writing, provocative discussion. Its insights are a gift to men and women.
