Abstract

Though they may sometimes find it difficult to express their feelings, most fathers care about their children and families. In a 1980 Gallup poll, six out of ten fathers said their families were “the most important element of my life at this time.” Only 8 percent said their families were unimportant to them. When asked what they found most satisfying about their families, fathers rated “children,” “closeness,” and “being together” as personally important.
