Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In the U.S. and Canada, there are nearly 8 million single mothers. There are also more than 2 million single dads. And over the past decade, the number of men looking after children by themselves has grown at almost three times the rate for women. This program provides an intimate look at the challenges of daily life for three single fathers and their children. Societal acceptance of single dads is also addressed, and questions concerning the concepts of maleness, fatherhood, and family are touched upon.
