Fatherhood in Kenyan Ethnic Communities: Implication for Child Development
Lasser, Jon; Fite, Kathleen; Wadende, Akinyi P.
School Psychology International, v32 n1 p49-57 Feb 2011
This article reviews the traditional and evolving constructions of fatherhood in Kenyan society, with an emphasis on fatherhood's impact on child development outcomes. Western influence and increased access to technology have changed the role of the Kenyan father, and in turn affected his role in the family. Special attention is given to implications for child development and for educators working with children and families in Kenya.
