Young Fathers in the Age of Unwed Parenthood

Paul Florsheim and David Moore

  • Presents an understanding of family instability that challenges conventional wisdom about why many fathers are disconnected
  • Uses fathers' own words to describe their experiences, thereby engaging readers, humanizing the struggles of young fathers (and their partners), and challenging stereotypes
  • Includes the voices of young mothers to convey a balanced, dynamic, and credible view of fathers and fatherhood
  • Offers a strategic solution to the problems posed by young unwed fathers and mothers, focused on reformulating prenatal healthcare to include the "expectant father"
  • Serves as a cogent response to a social problem of wide concern
