A study published in the
current issue of Family Process provides an in-depth look at fathering in families
with young children and finds that the most involved fathers live outside traditional
gendered roles. Responsive fathers shucked the old model of fatherhood in which
the man is the breadwinner and more valued than his child-rearing wife.
The least interactive fathers frequently held strong traditional beliefs. These fathers often held the perception that their wives had a better deal, whether or not she worked outside of the home. "Mothers' contributions (i.e. financial, childcare, or housework) were expected, and not viewed as worthy of notice," the authors state.
