Cutting-edge information contained in the Guide:

  • Fathers are becoming an integrated member of the family. Parenting is now inclusive of both mothers and fathers.
  • Moms have been promoted from gatekeepers to facilitators. The most successful father-involvement programs include mothers.
  • The era of “silo” programs aimed at fixing fathers is over. Parents (including fathers) and practitioners are now viewed as partners in the well-being of children.
  • For the most vulnerable fathers and families, education alone is not sufficient. The best programs provide case managers to help families access needed services.
  • Father involvement programs are increasingly part of larger programs offering comprehensive services to parents and families.
