Transition, v24 n1 Mar 1994
This theme issue of "Transition" features a series of articles on fatherhood and the changing role of fathers in parenting. The articles include: (1) "From Cloth to Paper Diapers and Back: Reflections on Fatherhood during Two Generations" (Robert Couchman), which relates experiences of a new father 20 years ago and today; (2) "Does Society Support Involved Fathering? (Robert Glossop and Ish Theilheimer), which examines whether society truly supports the idea of active fathering that receives so much attention in the media; (3) "The Changing Faces of Fatherhood" (Germain Dulac), which discusses the stages of fatherhood and how fathers' roles have changed over time; (4) "Talking about Fatherhood" (Ginette Decoste), which summarizes the findings of a study on the attitudes of fathers toward parenting; and (5) "Dad Is the Trailer" which reports on a survey of attitudes toward fatherhood in Canada. The last article, "Time To Thank Families--Not Blame Them" (Alan Mirabelli) describes families as being mostly hardworking and flexible, and encourages society to support them since families build our society and drive our economy. Other sections of the issue list conferences and seminars on the family and profile four publications on Canada's families by the Vanier Institute of the Family. (MDM)
