What are some events Project Fatherhood does in communities? Project Fatherhood Project Fatherhood was developed to give urban, culturally diverse fathers an opportunity to connect with their children and play a meaningful role in their lives. The program continues to be recognized nationally for effectively addressing the problem of absentee fathers, a major social issue affecting the healthy development of a significant number of children. Target Population Over his career, Dr. Hershel Swinger had long observed that fathers were most often left out of programs designed to strengthen troubled low-income urban families and prevent child abuse and neglect. But he firmly believed that fathers wanted what was best for their kids. To that end, he devised Project Fatherhood SM to give fathers the tools to participate actively in the rearing and well-being of their children. In 2010, KPI was awarded a grant of $300,000 over a period of three years from Children's Institute, Inc. in order to continue to carry out the mission of Project Fatherhood at the Jordan Downs Public Housing Development.

Transcript: Fatherhood South Korea "Parenting across culture" by Helaine Selin Child factors: Fathers do appear to find it easier to be more involved with their sons, especially older sons, presumably because they identify with them and are more comfortable communicating with them - Diverse family structures including trends of men who leave their families (or never marry) to find work in major cities (Xuan & Lamb, 2013). -Paternal involvement depends on children’s ages (Jankowiak, 2010). Fathers were not interested with infants and children under 3 years of age; became more actively involved when children started walking and talking; becomes more formally involved when children enrol in school (age 7) because of the responsibility over children’s education. Fathers were frequently associated to be authoritarian due to the early teachings of Confucius stressed parental involvement in child development and emphasized strict discipline. Traditional chinese fathering is a product of Confucian, Taoist and Buddhist thought. Ideal father is someone who is responsible but also affectionately distant disciplinarian and role model. - Is a very large and heterogeneous population in regard to culture and religion. - Indian fathers distance themselves and are awkward with their children, avoiding open expressions of emotion in order to maintain their authority as family patriarchs. - Fatherhood roles are often shared with a wide network that may include relatives, neighbours, friends, and household helpers. - Ironically, fathers that are usually unemotional toward their children typically become openly loving and affectionate as grandfathers. -Pygmies and Aka fathers are involved with the children beginning with infancy; -Kipsigi fathers in Kenya do not hold infants during the first year. -For the Tswana people of Botswana, the child’s maternal uncle provides relational involvement in the child’s life while the biological father provides financially. -Fulani fathers do not think parental involvement becomes important until age 6 or 7. China Coparental relationship: Standards and expectations for fathering appear to be more variable than those for mothering. Fathers' behavior will be strongly influenced by the meanings and expectations of fathers themselves, as well as mothers, children, extended family, and broader cultures and institutions. Importance of fathers being married to the children’s mothers: In American families, marriage means father 1) lives with children and 2) has a good partnership with the mother. These 2 determines a responsible fathering World War 2 and after war: Cultural differences in fathering - Marriage is usually not the typical path to fatherhood in Southern Africa. - Black Southern African fathers, are often assumed, even required, to be significant figures in the lives of children. The model is intended to be inclusive of fathering inside or outside of marriage and regardless of co-residence with the child. The model attempts to transcend the dyadic focus of much traditional child development theory by emphasizing first the child­father­mother triad and then larger systems influences. Implications Africa East and Central Africa In the 1960s and 1970s, post-war cultural ideas which emphasized on physical proximity and emotional sensitivity left little room for fathers to interact with their children. Mid twentieth century: corporal punishment and strict discipline techniques were used particularly by fathers. Contemporary Japanese fathers may have evolved along the years, but still less likely than men in other countries to indicate strong interest in parenting. Japanese fathers generally have a very narrow view of what it’s like to be a father. Focus more on work than engaging with their family and children. Even though they do not spend more time with their children, research has suggested that they have become less strict and more gentle compared to previous generations. Fathering is a dynamic, multifaceted process that is heavily influenced by individual factors as well as the ecological factors Historical changes of fathering Asian cultural traditions emphasised the role of the father as hard working but emotionally distant from children. 12% of all families have stay-t-home dads sharp increase of single fathers from 2001-2006 Highlights the need of proper father figure in child development Theories - Departed from the traditional “strict father, affectionate mother” ideology sooner than Chinese and Korean fathers (Nakazawa and Shwalb 2013 ). - Traditional Japanese emphasis on emotion-focused and permissive fathering and has provided the base for a more contemporary ideal of a nurturing and friendly Japanese father. What is the issue? Males historically are the breadwinners of the family. 1960, fathers have continued to spend more time with children, the first country to dissolve "males as breadwinners" Stereotypes of "fathers as breadwinners" are disappearing; number of fathers as primary


Transcript: But we fathers generally agreed that we and our little ones were doing O.K. We felt we didn’t need or welcome gratuitous and pitying advice from meddlesome mommies who presumed to instruct us, as if from some divinely appointed pinnacle of wisdom. We weren’t looking to be mothers, after all. We were fathers. We understood the difference 9.9.1997 Kennedy sue butler is born You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. ~Desmond Tutu Book review/ Poem 12.10.2005 The day my Grandmother Helen moved in to help my father financially and started to become my mother figure. By:Kennedy BUtler Personal The family is a haven in a heartless world. ~Attributed to Christopher Lasch 86 percent of dads spend more time with their children today than their own fathers did with them. However, a majority of dads (7 out of 10) also reported that they could use tips on how to be a better parent. These PSAs are reaching out to all fathers to inspire and support men in their commitment to responsible fatherhood. The PSAs communicate to fathers that their presence is essential to their children's well-being. The tagline "Take time to be a dad today" is part of an ongoing effort to encourage dads to play an active role in their children's lives. The campaign also serves as a resource for fathers by providing the information they need to become more involved with their kids Currently available data and concerns over the validity of mother reports significantly truncate the ability of researchers to address a myriad of research questions concerning father involvement. This study aims to inform this concern by examining predictors of father involvement and father-mother discrepancies in reports of involvement within a low-income, predominantly minority sample of families with both residential and nonresidential fathers Ad 1.13.2000 My mother walked out on me and my sister charlie, leaving our father as our only support Timeline 10.3.2008 My father finally proved himself and got back on track I don't care how poor a man is; if he has family, he's rich. ~Dan Wilcox Work Cited Dear Reader, The reason I chose the topic fatherhood is because it is something that plays a big part in my life. My father Lonnie Butler is a single parent because of my mother Dana, She had decided to walk out and choose drugs over her family. Ever since, My father raised me an my older sister charlie alone. If it wasn't for all of his potential to do whatever he could in his power, we wouldn't be the strong brave girls we are today. I couldn't thank my father enough for everything he has done. Just like in A Thousand Splendid suns Lalia had to raise her daughter and her step son because of Rasheed's death and until she got remarried she did everything in her will to show them to choose the right path.. 6.16.2002 Went on family vacation with my dad and older sister charlie Are men and women different? You betcha. But so what? When these discussions arise, they should never, ever be about the parents.
