Description: Are fathers really important? Of course they are. Yet we as a society have wittingly and unwittingly built nearly insurmountable barriers that restrict men's involvement with their children and families. Parke and Brott explode the myths of neglectful, uninterested, abusive, deadbeat, and lazy dads with real-life studies and statistics. They explain why the largely negative portrayal of fathers in books, television, and the movies is both inaccurate and harmful, training young boys and girls to see men as having little or no role in the family. The authors also examine in balanced fashion the dubious achievements of both the men's and women's movements in reevaluating men's and women's roles.

Complete with proposals for steps that men, women, employers, the medical community, the media, and the government can take to promote men's involvement in their children's lives, Parke and Brott offer a comprehensive look at how our entire society can experience the benefits and joys of active fatherhood.
