There is no denying that as a group, children from two parent homes have better outcomes than children from single parent homes. For example, girls who grow up in a home where the father has left before she turns six have a one in three chance of becoming pregnant by age 19. Girls from two parent homes have only a one in twenty chance of becoming pregnant by age 19. Encouraging active fatherhood helps children.
Providing adequate childcare is a major concern for all families. From the costs to the quality of care, raising a child in today's world is a difficult endeavor. More than even, both parents are necessary for the stable and positive rearing of children. Fatherhood has continually evolved over the years and this latest movement has only helped ease the struggle of raising a child in the modern world.
Yes if there are fathers who are staying home with the children this can be beneficial to the whole family. Sometimes even if the father works a 2nd shift job he can be home with his kids. Kids need their fathers they listen better to their fathers than to the mothers also.
No, the fatherhood movement does not help families who struggle with consistently with providing adequate childcare, because the courts still do not recognize fathers. A father who wants to be involved and be a good parent has an uphill battle, when mothers are just considered perfect. Mothers cry for child support instead of involving the fathers.
