In a four decade, four generation study, the author examines the often overlooked role of the father's involvement in three vital realms of children's development: social-emotional, intellectual-academic, and physical-athletic. Looking specifically at fathers' relationships with their oldest children during the first two decades of their lives, the author addresses issues of fathering in both childhood and adolescence. He presents portraits of individual father-son and father-daughter relationships, and measures and defines the ways in which "good" fathers are constructively engaged in and supportive of children's growth.

From the Back Cover:

In this age of working mothers, the role of fathering is often overlooked. This book illuminates the realitites of fathering by presenting the results of a unique empirical study conducted over four decades and covering four generations. Through case studies and data analysis, John Snarey demonstrates that men's care for their families reaps immense and long-lasting benefits - for themselves, for their offspring, and for future generations.|In striking contrast to research that considers fathers to be obscure or peripheral figures, Snarey reveals their position as central caregivers and characterizes their most effective nurturing behaviors.
