Fatherhood Initiatives: Connecting Fathers to Their Children
Carmen Solomon-Fears (au)
In 2012, 25% of families with children (under age 18) were maintained by mothers. According to some estimates, about 60% of children born during the 1990s spent a significant portion of their childhood in a home without their father. Research indicates that children raised in single-parent families are more likely than children raised in two-parent families (with both biological parents) to do poorly in school, have emotional and behavioral problems, become teenage parents, and have poverty-level incomes. In hopes of improving the long-term outlook for children in single-parent families, federal, state, and local governments, along with public and private organizations, are supporting programs and activities that promote the financial and personal responsibility of noncustodial fathers to their children and increase the participation of fathers in the lives of their children. These programs have come to be known as äóìresponsible fatherhoodäó programs. Contents of this report: Introduction; What Are Fatherhood Initiatives?; Research and Evaluation; Issues: CSE System and Noncustodial Parents Often at Odds; Noncustodial Father Involvement vs. Promotion of Marriage vs. Maintenance of Fragile Families; Appendix: Legislative History of Federally Funded Responsible Federal Fatherhood Programs. This is a print on demand report.
