Supporting Men as Fathers, Caregivers, and Educators
Honig, Alice Sterling
Early Child Development and Care, v178 n7-8 p665-687 2008
A review of research on fathering and research on men employed in work with young children in centers and in elementary schools emphasises the importance of positive male engagement with young children for their optimal development. Research also reveals the complexity of studying these relationships and the barriers in families and in society that impede the implementation of positive interactions. Suggestions are given for increasing positive male participation in the home and in educational settings.
