Item Description...
Why Fathers Count: The Importance of Fathers and Their Involvement with Children (edited by Sean E. Brotherson and Joseph M. White) is an anthology (27 articles) dealing with the most important work men ever do?-being totally involved in the lives of their children and families. It is men's strengths, their capacity to care and protect and give, that are needed by children, women, and men themselves. In a culture that questions the value of men in family life, we need a compelling perspective on what men can contribute to their families and communities and insight on the ways in which fathers and father figures make a meaningful difference. Why Fathers Count offers that insight, giving a fresh and powerful perspective on the meaningful contributions of fathers and father figures to the lives of children and families.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Amazing!!  Feb 12, 2008
These authors do a fantastic job at collecting all the important information and packaging it in an easy to read format for readers of all backgrounds and education. As a family researcher and clinician, this book really is an excellent proof of the importance of fathers and their roles in the family.

The things the researchers in this book identified about what good fathers did in comparison to what bad fathers did can also be good guide for parents out there who want to know what is proven to work in parenting. But the overall tenor of this book is to show specific advantages children have (based on research) when they have an involved father. I would recommend this book for everyone who works with families on any level.
Important and scary  Nov 30, 2007
This book is a collection of articles about fathers. All of the articles are interesting for one reason or another, but it's the overall impression that is so stunning.

How can we have gone so wrong? How can we have avoided seeing the obvious?

Children need fathers desperately, and if a child is raised in a single parent family the results are all too frequently catastrophic. Lower school grades, drug abuse, early sexual experimentation, depression, suicide, and incapacity to form deep relationships all dog the children whose fathers are gone. Moreover, the results don't go away even in adulthood.

Over the last fifty years, as marital ties have loosened, a flood of studies, not only in the west but throughout the world, have shown the tragic results for children. And the facts are simply that children are harmed if are raised in a single parent home. Yet "in the 1990s statistics showed that within one year after divorce 18 percent of children sampled did not see their nonresident father at all, and 50 percent said they saw their nonresident fathers less than once a month. The likelihood that fathers will maintain ties with their children and pay child support is even lower if men never marry the mother of their children" (p 43).

What can be done to reverse the situation? There are no answers in the book, only a portrait of a culture that is harming its children, and therefore its future.
