Single Custodial Fathers.
Hanson, Shirley May Harmon
This paper reviews literature from the past 10 years about single fathers. Statistics are presented to show the number of single fathers, their race, socioeconomic status, religion, age, and employment. Other issues discussed include an analysis of single fathers' parenting and homemaking skills, their motivation for custody, and visiting and child support arrangements. The paper also summarizes the importance of social and emotional support systems and reviews the few studies relating to the children of single fathers. Other topics include child care arrangements and father-child relationships. (JAC)
