Fathers' Roles in the Process of Talent Development
Lee, Seon-Young
Asia Pacific Education Review, v11 n4 p497-513 Dec 2010
In the process of children's talent development, fathers have been largely ignored compared to mothers who are mostly identified as the initial and primary influence for their children. Though modern fathers are becoming more engaged in childrearing and interacting more with their children and changes in family systems lead to new challenges and demands for defining parental roles today, fathers are still predominately portrayed as the principal breadwinners of families. Literature including both empirical and anecdotal data has documented positive and promising outcomes of paternal involvement for children's talent development though fathers' roles are not always differentiated from mothers' roles and little research studied fathers and gifted children, exclusively. This paper includes a comprehensive review of fathers' contributions to children's talent development and discussion about issues and suggestions for research involving fathers and talent development.
