This article presents a discussion on a book called "The Fatherhood Movement: A Call to Action." Participants include: Susan Albright, an editorial pages editor of the Minneapolis-based Star Tribune; David Blankenhorn, the founder and president of the New York based Institute for American Values, a private, nonpartisan organization devoted to research, publication, and education on issues of family well-being and civil society; and Wade Horn, president and co-founder of the Maryland-based National Fatherhood Initiative. The discussion touches on the reasons for a fatherhood movement, the consequences of father absenteeism, the need for fathers to take responsibility, the importance of fathers, and research results on the benefits of child involvement for fathers. The different ways that fathers parent are explored, and the proposed federal Fathers Count Act is explained.
