Father Involvement in Canada PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Father Involvement in Canada free pdf The landscape of Canadian fatherhood has changed dramatically over
the past several decades. Today, "father" can mean a
biological parent in the context of a heterosexual marriage, but it can
also mean an adoptive parent in a same-sex union, a sperm donor, a
step-parent, a single parent, a co-parent in cooperation with an
ex-partner, and myriad other possibilities. The traditional family unit
may not look the same as it used to, but fathers are as important today
as ever before.
"Father Involvement in Canada" brings together more than a
dozen leading scholars of fatherhood issues to examine the roles of
Canadian fathers from many angles. Looking at the experiences of
fathers from different ethnicities, ages, marital statuses, gender
partnering, and economic brackets, the authors examine issues such as
the impact of poverty, access to paternity leave, and the availability
of support from social institutions. By co-considering these dimensions
and viewpoints, the contributors bring to light interlocking
individual, familial, and socio-economic systems in which fathers are
embedded.
National in scope, "Father Involvement in Canada" is the first
book of its kind to summarize and challenge current scholarship on
Canadian fatherhood and offer new concepts, theoretical frameworks, and
research directions.Jessica Ball is Professor in the School of Child
and Youth Care at the University of Victoria. Kerry
Daly is Dean of the College of Social and Applied Human
Sciences at the University of Guelph.
