  • Strengthening Fragile Families – BrookingsThe rise of fragile families—families that begin when a child is born outside of marriage—is one of the nation’s most vexing social problems. In the first place, these families suffer high poverty rates and poor child outcomes. Even more problematic, the very groups of Americans who traditionally experience poverty, impaired child development, and poor school achievement have the highest rates of nonmarital parenthood—thus intensifying the disadvantages faced by these families and extending them into the next generation.

FATHERHOOD

Research

  • Tossed on a Sea of Change: A Status Update on the Responsible Fatherhood Field
    As a result of changing funding requirements, rapidly evolving program priorities, and increasing demands for evidence-based practice, the field of responsible fatherhood has, in some sense, lost its center of gravity. It has been “tossed on a sea of change.” Ron Mincy assesses the field and helps chart the course for the future.
  • Fathering: A Journal of Theory, Research, and Practice about Men as Fathers
    Fathering is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal devoted to the promotion of knowledge about fathers and families as well as practice and outreach to fathers. The journal publishes original empirical (quantitative and/or qualitative) and theoretical papers as well as practice-oriented articles and analytic literature reviews. Fathering is intended for researchers, practitioners, teachers and students in the behavioral and social sciences and those whose research examines any intersection of men’s lives and the parenting role in the broadest sense. The journal considers scholarly submissions especially in the disciplines of psychology, human development, family studies, sociology, social work, demography, anthropology and social history.
