DadsDivorce Live: The Evolving Field Of Fatherhood Research

Over the last century, the manner in which researchers study fathers has changed dramatically. 

Years ago, the focus centered on whether or not dads were present in the home and what effect that had on children. Now, researchers are more concerned with what fathers are doing inside the home. That has led to greater insights into how dads interact with their kids and how they contribute to their upbringing.
