Takes an informative and challenging look at fathering and what it means to be a father. It discusses the fascinating, moving and often contradictory role in which Australian men find themselves as fathers and looks at issues such as: What is a good father these days?; What is it fathers provide that is so influential to a child's development?; Is fathering importantly different to mothering?; Is it a role that a single mother or a substitute parent can take?; What do fathers and children say?; What do women think? Practitioners share their research and experiences of working with fathers and explore many aspects of fathering including the role they play in a child's life, stereotypes, issues and pressures they face.
