"I Want Child Care He's Gonna Be Happy in": A Case Study of a Father's Child Care Experiences
Ceglowski, Deborah; Shears, Jeffrey; Furman, Richard
Early Education and Development, v21 n1 p1-20 2010
Research Findings: This in-depth single case study explores the experiences of a single father with finding and maintaining child care for his son. This American middle-income, Caucasian father lives and works in Minnesota. Findings include difficulty locating and maintaining child care, dissatisfaction with child care quality, concerns about paying for care, and using grandparents as a secondary form of care. Practice or Policy: This article contributes to the literature because it is the only case study available about a father's involvement in child care and how single fathers engage with nonparental care. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
