Men in the Lives of Children.
Evans, Judith L.; Brown, Janet
Coordinators' Notebook: An International Resource for Early Childhood Development, n16 1995
This theme issue of "Coordinators' Notebook" takes a cross-cultural look at how men, as fathers, caregivers, and in other roles, affect the lives of young children. The issue also explores the ways in which educating men about the needs of children and getting them involved in the programming process have strengthened programs that promote the growth and development of young children. The title article, by Judith L. Evans, covers the following topics: (1) men as fathers; (2) changing roles of men and women; (3) the roles men play beyond being a father; (4) strategies for deepening men's understanding and involvement with their children; and (5) suggestions on where to begin when establishing programs. A second article (Janet Brown) explores gender relations and conflicts. Other sections of this issue provide related resources, profiles of programs providing quality services to children and families. Additional news and information on the Consultative Group on Early childhood Care and Development conclude the issue, including announcement of the two 1995 women's conferences to be held in Beijing, China.
