Overview

Fathers and Early Childhood Programs is intended to introduce the reader to many of the critical issues that are being studied about fathers in the social sciences. The authors review the available research regarding father involvement in programs for young children and they present the results of 33 in-depth interviews they have collected on this subject. They present the theoretical perspectives they see as relevant to building better partnership between programs and fathers. The authors offer practical suggestions for working with fathers, staff and the community to facilitate increased father and family involvement. Additionally, tools to enhance or start a father involvement program and fun and educational activities for fathers make this an extremely enlightening and effective book.
