The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers : Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States Paperback / softback

Part of the Emerald Points series

Description

Family forms in the United States are continuing to evolve.

Fathers choosing to stay home to care for their children while their wives work is an emerging trend.

In this book, the author explores why stay-at-home fathers chose carework over paid work, how such a choice shapes their masculine identities and their fathering styles, and where they find themselves positioned in their communities.

Scholars and students interested in families, gender, masculinity, and parenting will find this book informative and engaging for understanding diverse family arrangements.
