How to Think about the "Deadbeat Dad" Problem.
Presbury, Jack H.; Benson, Jerry A.; McKee, John E.; Fitch, Jon; Fitch, Sherri
Journal of Humanistic Education and Development, v35 n3 p135-45 Mar 1997
Investigates the second-order operational rules that seem to maintain deadbeat behavior, those assumptions and laws which disenfranchise fathers and exacerbate the problem of father-absence. Examines emotional and financial withdrawal and the interplay between authority and responsibility. Claims that counselors must understand the debate to intervene effectively with families. (RJM)
