about this item

Fatherhood is in transition, as men try to balance being both active and involved fathers while meeting the demands of the workplace. This book explores these challenges in the context of cross-national policies and the influences of these policies on the daily childcare practices of fathers. Highlighting the increasing interest in the enduring impact of early life experience, the contributors present the most up-to-date research on father involvement with young, preschool-age children in six countries—Finland, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, and the United States—offering insight into the effects of different national policies related to parenting in general and fathers in particular.
