Fathering in the 20th Century.
Atkinson, Maxine P.; Blackwelder, Stephen P.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n4 p975-86 Nov 1993
Analysis of popular magazine articles published from 1900 to 1989 revealed that the definition of fathering has alternated over the century between fathers as providers and fathers as nurturers. Interest in fatherhood throughout twentieth century was found to have fluctuated rather than increased. Found evidence for increased interest in gender-nonspecific parenting. (Author/NB)
