  • Plato And Jim's Parents
    477 words
    For Judy, lipstick has both pleasurable and painful connotations. Her conflict with her father stems from her wearing it and his rejection of it. "He looks at me like I m the ugliest thing in the world", she tells an officer. Her desire to get her father's attention with lipstick is characteristic of the Electra complex she has for him. Instead of showing his approval, however, he smears it off her lips and calls her a tramp. Conversely, he tells her that she is too old to kiss him. "I don t wan...
  • Question Why Howard And Melinda

    5,566 words
    Throughout the United States, more than one-third of children don't live with their biological fathers, and about 17 million of those children don't live with any father at all. Of those, roughly 40 percent haven't seen their fathers in the last year.

  • Importance Of A Father Figure
    2,355 words
    It is a common belief that the decline of fatherhood is one of the most basic, unexpected, and extraordinary social trends of our time (Tischler, 2001, p. 19). However, the opposing view of this standpoint is that there is no decline in fatherhood. There are very few people saying that they doubt the fundamental importance of mothers, yet there are those that believe that the importance of a father figure is diminishing (Tischler, 2001). There are even those who see the father position in a fami...
  • Importance Of Fathers
    659 words
    Recently the issue whether lesbians or single women should have the right to the access of IVF treatment has brought about the argument of the importance of men in the task of rearing children. Fathers are being reduced to the role of only sperm donors and are consequently disregarded as an important factor in parenting. There is significant evidence that points to a range of benefits for children who have active fathers. These include greater ambition, respect for the opposite sex, stronger sex...
  • Custodial Rights To Their Minor Children
    472 words
    In recent years, more and more fathers have attempted to win custody of their children following a divorce. Despite the earnest efforts to remain a part of their children's lives, these fathers remain at a disadvantage when it comes to child custody disputes. The system has made father's visitors of their children's lives; visitors who can pick their children up for a few hours every now and then, as long as it doesn t interfere too much with Mom's new life. I feel that although mothers are good...

    1,454 words
    It is a common belief that the decline of fatherhood is one of the most basic, unexpected, and extraordinary social trends of our time. A shadow of a father on his son is as important as a pen is to a writer. Some fathering advocates say that almost every social ill faced by America's children is related to fatherlessness (Kimir B 1). There are very few people saying that they doubt the fundamental importance of mothers, yet there are those that believe that the importance of a father figure is ...
  • Life Also Fathers
    1,632 words
    "Fathers should be seen nor heard. That's the only proper basis for family life". (Popenoe 1) That was the view on how things should be years ago. Fathering a child is not just the woman's job anymore. Now what society expects of fathers has changed enormously. Fathers are now expected to be more involved in their children's lives and more involved with housework. The role of the father is bigger than past generations of fathers would have thought possible. Many people once thought that fathers ...
