While studies have demonstrated that men are important to maternal and child health, expectant fathers lack specific roles in pregnancy and childbirth. In this article from the September/October 2012 edition of Trends in Urology and Mens Health, Dr. Jermane Bond examines pathways to improve paternal involvement in childbirth and family health. Men and expectant fathers have until recently been excluded from pregnancy and childbirth. Retrospective studies have been largely reassuring that fathers play a vital role in child health and development; however, little is known regarding the role of the expectant father in pregnancy outcomes. Though, the little that we do know about paternal involvement and pregnancy outcomes suggests that paternal involvement can have a positive influence on maternal health behaviors during pregnancy.. ...

Policy interest in the UK around fathers and fathering has increased rapidly since 1997. Researchers have cautioned against homogenising fathers experiences. Instead, they have emphasised the need to uncover the diversity in contemporary fathering. This report focuses on disabled fathers experiences of raising children. It is the product of a national one-day conference for and about disabled fathers held at the University of Hull on 22nd February 2007. The report includes original empirical research evidence about how men understand and practice fathering in the context of impairment and disability, and examines evidence on how disabled fathers experiences might differ from those of disabled mothers. It also presents the perspectives of practitioners working with disabled fathers and parents, organisations of disabled parents, as well as disabled fathers themselves, about what research, policy and practice agendas for and about disabled fathers should consist of. The report will be relevant ...
The period of pregnancy and childbirth is an important and sensitive time for mens upcoming parenthood. Research into fathers experiences of childbearing has received less attention compared to maternal experiences. The purpose of this thesis was to study the sources fathers use to obtain information about pregnancy and childbirth, fathers preference for the mode of birth of their baby, and fathers childbirth experience and their perception of postnatal care quality.In 2007, 1105 expectant fathers were enrolled in the study when their partner had reached the middle of pregnancy. The fathers were followed until one year after the birth of their baby. The fathers were living in the county of Västernorrland in Sweden and their babies were born in one of the three hospitals in the county. Data was analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics, and content analysis. An index was created from a combination of fathers experiences of postnatal care quality.iiiCommon sources of information ...
IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) resurrects the vision and perpetuates the legacy of the late L.T. Henry who saw the need for an Interactive Forum for Fathers which would help them address their unique parenting needs. During his lifetime, Mr. Henry was an author, photojournalist, sales and success motivation trainer, and a classically trained jazz musician who performed briefly with The Philadelphia Orchestra and was the former drummer for internationally acclaimed songstress and film and television actress Ms. Della Reese. The perpetuation of Mr. Henrys legacy and contributions to the Global Fatherhood Movement also takes the form of a book -- IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R)--TRANSCENDING BOUNDARIES, edited and authored by D.A.Sears, United States Coordinator - International Mens Day; Chair, USA 2012-2022 International Mens Day Ten Year Plan Committee; member, International Mens Day Coordination Committee; member of the University Council on Fatherhood and Mens Studies Program at Akamai University ...

Recently, Physical Therapys Daniel Fisher has been hard at work with House of Ladoshas Michael Magnan on a new side project called Fatherhood, collaborating on "hard clubs tracks" (as Fisher described them to us) and hosting a night called Fathers Day in NYC. The latter, "a warehouse party series devoted to joyous house and techno," is happening this Friday, November 23rd somewhere deep in the East Williamsburg/Bushwick netherzone, and will include a throw-down by L-Vis 1990 and Jam City, performing respectively under the names JM Anthony and Vincent LTraques.

A brain scanning study using Pittsburgh Compound B, involving 42 healthy individuals (aged 50-80), of whom 14 had mothers who developed Alzheimers, 14 had fathers with Alzheimers, and 14 had no family history of the disease, has found that those with a maternal history had 15% more amyloid-beta plaques than those with a paternal history, and 20% more than those with no family history. The findings add to evidence that having a mother with Alzheimers is a greater risk factor than having a father with Alzheimers. The groups did not differ in age, gender, education, or apolipoprotein E (ApoE) status.. ...

Schulte wants her readers to believe I want all families to have 1950s-style gender roles. In fact, my book makes clear that I have great respect for women who want full-time careers and wish them well. Moreover, I know that I did much more to help raise my children than my father did to raise his. And my sons are doing still more to help raise their children. I think these trends are great. As I noted above, fathers typically bring a distinctive and developmentally important style to parenting. But the trends have not changed the beliefs of mothers (and fathers) about which sex should take the lead in parenting young children. According to Pews 2013 survey, "Among fathers with children under age 18, 17% say the ideal situation for mothers of young children is to work full time. Only 7% of mothers agree with this." The answers are very different if the question is about whats ideal for fathers: "75% of fathers say the ideal situation for fathers of young children is to work full time; 66% of ...

LOS ANGELES-Just because an expectant father fainted and died of head injuries after watching his wife have an epidural doesnt mean the procedure itself is particularly dangerous.
Dendritic cell vaccines are used for both the treatment of advanced cancer as well as for prevention of cancer. The potential of these vaccines can be seen in the anecdotal example of Brad Silver, who in 2002 was diagnosed with a rare form of a brain cancer called glioblastoma, or GBM. GBM is extremely virulent. As reported by UCLA Neurosurgery, Brad Silvers case was so advanced his doctor told him he had two months to live. Brad was 33 years old, and it was supposed to be a happy time, as his wife was seven months pregnant.. As an expectant father, "I needed to find something to ... at the minimum keep me alive so I could be there for the birth of my son," Brad recalls. He joined a phase 1 trial that used a section of his tumor to create a personalized immunotherapy vaccine. Brad, who grew up surfing and lifeguarding in Huntington Beach, survived to teach his son how to surf. In fact, 11 years later, he is still celebrating his cancer-free survival.. The successful drug was developed first at ...
Hello all! This is my first message as an expectant father and having just got past the nerve wracking 20 week scan were now ready to start the fun
On Fathers Day, as we celebrate the men who hold a revered place in our heart, I cant help but think that there is a part of fatherhood that goes without much recognition. Our fathers are teachers, advisors, coaches and our most ardent supporters. They love us without condition, even when we arent all that loveable. What we fail to realize in our youth is that fathers often carry out these roles while navigating through the high seas of life and do it so artfully that often

Its not often that President Obama and I agree. But on this Fathers Day, I am reminded some issues go beyond political debates and are deeply personal.. The president has, on several occasions, spoken powerfully about the importance of fathers. In this years State of the Union address, the president said his administration will be "doing more to encourage fatherhood - because what makes you a man isnt the ability to conceive a child; its having the courage to raise one." I could not agree more.. And more recently, at a commencement address at the all-male historically black Morehouse College, President Obama discussed his own upbringing, one where a father was not present, saying, "I was raised by a heroic single mom, wonderful grandparents - made incredible sacrifices for me. And I know there are moms and grandparents here today who did the same thing for all of you. But I sure wish I had had a father who was not only present, but involved. [I] didnt know my dad. And so my whole life, ...
Something that is not often acknowledged is that fathers frequently suffer the same mental and spiritual wounds that women do after the loss of a pregnancy. And given that the 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss, there is a lot of pain fathers or potential fathers are carrying around. The manifestation of the wounds may be different. We all grieve differently. There might be anger, blaming, accusations, dealing with poorly thought-out words that are supposed to be comforting but they really arent. There could be depression or other forms of mental illness. I experienced periods of lost time where I just froze up, fuzziness of thinking and inability to concentrate, and I ended up needing to drop a course in seminary. In other words, I went through about six months of a few PTSD symptoms ...

Its not about me anymore, is it Doc?" I hear this all the time from men I helped to become new Dads. New responsibility, new priorities, new love. Maybe thats why having children has been called one of few "vertical moves" in life.. While fatherhood changes many a life, its also no bed of roses. Sleepless nights, startling, middle-of-the-night cries, unpredictable poops and random behavior. Any doubt whos really the boss? And now, to top things off, a new study suggests that new fathers are fatter than their childless buddies.. Yup, new Dads gain an average of 4 lbs. after the little one arrives whereas non-fathers of the same age tend to lose weight (1.5 lbs.). Not a very pleasant finding from a large and highly believable study of 10,253 U.S. men followed for an average of 20 years. Sad but true, longitudinal studies like this one are particularly powerful when it comes to revealing lifes little truths.. ...

Dear Ruth. I am not sure why you would think that fathers are being left "of the hook"by their exploits into fornication which is a sin for both of the participants.. Perhaps you did not read the original question, but it concerned ONLY the expectant mother and that is the answer we gave.. Nobody is attempting to ignore the father of the pre born baby ... sin does not know gender discrimination. If an abortion occurs, and both parents favor the killing, both parents are in a state of grave sin. Having said that fornication itself is a sin... a serious offense against God.. Judie Brown ...

This dissertation examines low-income fathers involvement with their young children using the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing (FFCW) data. Chapter 3 entitled, "He Said, She Said: Comparing Father and Mother Reports of Father Involvement," compares mother and father reports of fathers frequency of involvement in various activities and in measures of emotional involvement. This chapter finds that fathers report spending 17.6 percent more time engaged in 11 activities with their young children than mothers report the father spending. How parental disagreement is measured yields starkly different results given the underlying distribution of these data. Chapter 4 entitled, "Estimating the Impact of Child Support and Welfare Policies on Fathers Involvement," is a longitudinal analysis combining three waves of the FFCW data with annual, state-level policy data on child support enforcement and welfare policies. This chapter examines the impact of policies on fathers involvement over time. ...

These findings suggest that father absence is associated with age at sexual maturity and reproduction in boys and that these effects are sensitive to the timing of father absence. Notably, the correlations between father absence and reproductive events are not consistent in their direction. For girls, father absence in developed societies is consistently associated with earlier maturation, earlier onset of sexual activity and earlier first childbirth [8,25]. Here, we show that for boys, father absence is associated with later puberty, later marriage, but earlier reproduction. Males are able to invest in either a mating (desertion) or parenting (commitment) strategy that is unavailable for females who are committed to intensive parental investment, at least among humans. Differences in the direction of the father-absence effects on marriage and reproduction may thus be attributable to the fact that investing in either mating or parenting are viable alternative strategies for ...
For a while after Paisleys birth, Heath felt alienated from his wife, new daughter, and even his passion for running. It wasnt until he made his baby girl laugh for the first time that everything changed; he finally felt deeply stirring unconditional love for his child. And so he began running again, pushing Paisley in her stroller while completing race after race. Not only was he able to bond with his daughter, but this shared activity enabled Heath to show the world how proud he was to be her father. Now a strong advocate for the very Down syndrome he feared facing, Heath is a humbled, changed man. ...

Although these early findings require replication with a larger and more representative sample, they raise intriguing questions about the interaction between mother and child (or parent and child, since fathers are also the focus of study). The intense sensory-tactile stimulation of a baby may trigger the adult brain to grow in key areas, allowing mothers, in this case, to "orchestrate a new and increased repertoire of complex interactive behaviors with infants," the authors wrote. Expansion in the brains "motivation" area in particular could lead to more nurturing, which would help babies survive and thrive physically, emotionally and cognitively ...
Sometimes the situation is more drastic. I recall noticing that a young father seemed to regularly speak to his three year old quite harshly. I tried to gently point it out to no avail. Finally, one Shabbos, I was in the sanctuary, the doors were closed, and the outer buildings doors were closed, yet I could hear this father outside, berating his son. I went outside to speak with him. I admit, I was quite angry, but I did not want to yell at him and have him become defensive. Instead, I tried to relate to him. I tried to explain that I knew what it was like to be angry and frustrated by your childs behavior, but that I was concerned about his pattern of yelling and speaking harshly with his son. I expressed my concern that this could easily permanently damage his relationship with his son, even if it never went beyond yelling. I asked him to notice the fear on his sons face. And, yes, I did mention that I was concerned that his anger could lead to him physically harm his child if he was not ...

has sidelined the boy child pushing him to the periphery. The boy child has been ignored for too long. The boy Child is suffering a life skills crisis and needs to be empowered. Life skills enable us to deal with day to day challenges. Consequently, family values are in danger since the boy child is expected to head the family. This has caused many families today to be dysfunctional. The nation which is built on the foundation of the family is standing on a shaky foundation. Our upbringing models us to be what we are. Current boy child has been brought up mainly by their mothers. Most fathers are absent physically or emotionally to act as role models to the boy child. Consequently, he has not been trained in the responsibilities of a man. Its common to find family men who are running away from their responsibilities. ...
A key question raised by the study findings is the direction of casualty.

Despite growing acceptance of a "new fatherhood" urging fathers to be engaged in family life, mens relative contributions to housework and child care have remained largely stagnant over the past twenty years. Using data from in-depth interviews, we describe how identity processes may contribute to this persistent inequality in parenting. We propose that the specificity of mens identity standards for the father role is related to role-relevant behavior, and that the vague expectations many associate with "new fatherhood" both contribute to and result from mens underinvolvement. ...

Men appear to be biologically wired to care for their babies, say researchers who have discovered levels of testosterone go down after becoming a dad.
That the brain undergoes physical changes in response to lifes experiences seems at once glaringly obvious and endlessly surprising. How could we possibly adapt to different situations if our brains stayed the same? Yet its still easy to find actual descriptions of these changes arresting and almost alarming. Changes you can count or measure - changes in number and length of dendrites, creation of new neurons - seem too finite, too … well, insubstantial to account for the subtle alterations in thought, behavior and knowledge with which we respond to change.. Thus the fascination of studies like the two discussed here. Both come from the lab of Liz Gould at Princeton, a "power house," as one researcher recently put it, of research on how positive changes in experience or environment ("enrichment," in the neurojargon) affect the brain. (For a good profile of Gould and her work, see this article by Jonah Lehrer.) One shows that the neuronal benefits of enriched lab environments found many times ...

And one has to ask, why did they alter it? Because there were systematic weaknesses in place that were not accounted for. The number one being greed and human irrationality. Any government or king exists to do one thing now, to perpetuate itself. To increase its reach and power over time, to drag its claws into everyones business and take power from the men of the house and replace it to the monarchy or to the state. Roosh seemed to think that the failure of nationalism was because the nation had failed its men, and in return why would men want to want to prop up the nation? While that may be true that did not take into account the ability for corporatism and ...

Paternity means fatherhood. Establishing paternity creates a legal relationship between a father and a child. Establishing parentage for a child provides that child many potential benefits. Some of those benefits include:

Hertz recently gave a presentation to a medical convention there and had the honor of seeing a new permanent display about her father at the University of Warsaw Medical School.
She indicated that I was about 8 weeks pregnant at this time. She was referring me to the hospital for an ultrasound because I needed to know exactly how far along I was. The father at this time is in ...
Konner is especially interested in play, which is not unique to humans and, indeed, seems to have been present, like the mother-offspring bond, from the dawn of mammals. The smartest mammals are the most playful, so these traits have apparently evolved together. Play, Konner says, "combining as it does great energy expenditure and risk with apparent pointlessness, is a central paradox of evolutionary biology." It seems to have multiple functions-exercise, learning, sharpening skills-and the positive emotions it invokes may be an adaptation that encourages us to try new things and learn with more flexibility. In fact, it may be the primary means nature has found to develop our brains ...
Our primary objective was to assess the specific impact of paternal parenting processes on adolescent sexual behavior. Overall, we found a lack of research on the influence of fathers despite the well-documented importance of familial variables in shaping adolescent behavior.4,6 Critical paternal process variables apparent in the literature include paternal attitudes toward adolescent sexual activity, monitoring and discipline, paternal involvement in the life of their adolescent child, emotional qualities of the father-adolescent relationship, and father-adolescent communication about sex.. Our review suggests several plausible paternal mechanisms of import to adolescent sexual behavior and outcomes. The most consistent finding across reviewed studies, including those using both cross-sectional and intervention design, was the significant association between father-adolescent communication and adolescent sexual behaviors such as increased condom use and abstinence from sex.32,35 In general, ...
The Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study follows a cohort of new parents and their children and provides previously unavailable information about the conditions and capabilities of new unwed parents and the well-being of their children. Mothers and fathers were interviewed in the hospital shortly after the birth of their children. The baseline questionnaires for mothers and fathers include information on (1) prenatal care, (2) mother-father relationships, (3) expectations about fathers rights and responsibilities, (4) attitudes toward marriage, (5) parents health, (6) social support and extended kin, (7) knowledge about local policies and community resources, and (8) education, employment, and income. Follow-up interviews gather additional information including (1) access to and use of healthcare and childcare services, (2) experiences with local welfare and child support agencies, (3) parental conflict and domestic violence, and (4) child health and well-being. The first four waves of ...

For the next four years, a research team headed by UConn nutritionist Carol Lammi-Keefe will be living by the beeper, along with more than 100 expectant fathers in the Hartford area.. Lammi-Keefe has been awarded a $1.2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to take her research on docosahexanoic acid (DHA), a fatty acid needed for infant growth and development, to the next level.. Using a special snack bar engineered at her request, the scientist is conducting an intervention to investigate whether an infant benefits when the mothers diet during pregnancy is supplemented with DHA. It is research that is not being duplicated anywhere else.. Several studies, including some of my earlier work, have shown that supplementing an infants diet with DHA soon after birth may improve the infants cognitive performance, says Lammi-Keefe. We also know that a developing fetuss sole source of fats is the mother. Since 70 percent of the brain cells are formed while in the uterus, we want ...
There have been studies that shown a correlation between having children and a drop in testosterone levels in men. But a recent research done in France has conclusively proved that most men show a drop of about 34 % in their blood testosterone levels after they become parents. And these levels did not get back to the pre-fatherhood levels in most men that participated in the study.. The adverse effects of low testosterone levels in younger as well as older men are well known. Hence it is essential to combat such changes before they become permanent.. But before one tries to reverse the effects that fatherhood has on testosterone levels, it is important to understand the reasons why such changes happen. Once this becomes a less of a mystery, changes the adverse effects can be a bit easier. ...

Lewin, who came to the UI in 1999, found finances are often a factor in gay mens decisions; public adoption is relatively cheap, and surrogacy can cost upwards of $100,000 per child.. More than one-third of married gay men in the United States were raising children in 2008, while roughly 7 percent of unmarried gay men were doing so, according to 2008 census data analyzed by Gary Gates of the Williams Institute based at the University of California-Los Angeles.. Johnny Symons - a 44-year-old Californian who directed and produced an Emmy-nominated documentary on gay fatherhood, Daddy and Papa - and his partner decided they would make good parents after a lot of discussions. Nine years ago, they adopted their first son through Californias public-adoption system. A photo of Symons, his husband, and their 8- and 10-year-old sons grace the cover of Lewins book.. Lewin, who fidgets as she talks and cites New Yorker articles to prove her points, also explored the way gay mens identities can change ...
1) During my research, I discovered a Congressional Record from the 1930s, which was a report compiled by an expert in counter intelligence hired by the British Parliament. The report detailed a plan or method to be employed by Parliament and the United States government, for the complete take over and destruction of the U. S. representative form of government! The report was sent to our Congress for review and then there was an argument from certain members of Congress who insisted that the report be recorded as "Top Secret," out of a fear of reprisal, should the American people discover its existence!. The opposition members of Congress argued that the American people are functionally illiterate and too preoccupied with their own personal comfort, to be concerned about what we do! The report was entered into the open record of Congress and was never discovered until 2002! I have this Congressional Record in my computer documents!. WARNING: [BEWARE AMERICA]!. 2) I met a man who was once ...
