Demythologizing the Mexican American Father
Saracho, Olivia N.; Spodek, Bernard
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v7 n2 p79-96 2008
This review presents recent studies on Mexican American fathers in the United Sates to provide researchers with an understanding of contemporary fatherhood of Mexican American individuals. It describes the myths that create methodological and conceptual problems in conducting research studies to characterize Mexican American fathers. It also suggests guidelines for future research and practical applications on Mexican American fathers' involvement in their children's education. In doing this, it contributes to the emerging research to better understand the complexity of Mexican American fathering.
