Book Description

Nov. 4 2006

More and more, fathers are deciding to stay at home and care for their children rather than work full-time outside of the home. More and more, Canadian families are lead by single fathers. Shining a spotlight on the lives of stay at home dads and single fathers, Do Men Mother? provides groundbreaking evidence of dramatic changes in mothering and fathering in Canada.

Using evidence gathered in a four-year in-depth qualitative study, including interviews with over 100 fathers - from truck drivers to insurance salesmen, physicians to artists - Andrea Doucet illustrates how men are breaking the mold of traditional parenting models. Doucet's research examines key questions such as: What leads fathers to trade earning for caring? How do fathers navigate through the 'maternal worlds' of mothers and infants? Are men mothering or are they redefining fatherhood?

Do Men Mother? illuminates fathers' candid reflections on caring and the intricate social worlds that men and women inhabit as they 'love and let go' of their children. In asking and unravelling the question 'do men mother,' this study tells a compelling story about Canadian parents radically re-visioning child care and domestic responsibilities at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fasinating look at ourselves ... Jan. 27 2010
Format:Paperback
We just received this book and have been thoroughly enjoying it. I read parts out loud to my husband and then he finds something to read to me. As the income earner in our family, this in depth examination of stay-at-home fathers is a fascinating look at our own beliefs and lifestyle choices. We can't wait to read "Bread and Roses ..." Thanks, Andrea!

5.0 out of 5 stars both enjoyable and insightful Feb. 16 2012
By Wally - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read this book as part of an academic project, but I enjoyed it on a personal level. Dr. Doucet has done a wonderful job of looking at how men interact with children and unpaid labor. Although I had never really given it much thought, it's fascinating to read about and reflect on how our gender and the expectations of those around us influence these parts of our life that feel so private and intimate.
