Abstract

The importance of fathers in their children’s upbringing is increasingly recognised in child and youth care practice. Yet professional interventions in families often focus on men as problems. The experiences of fathers in community settings are applied to a child and youth care context. Workers are challenged to consider the role fathers play in their children’s lives and how CYC principles might provide a basis for including men in their thinking about their work with children, youth, and their families.
