Raymond A. Levy and Milton Kotelchuck 1 Introduction  Fatherhood as a positive and critically important topic has not been taken seriously in academia, health communities, obstetrical clinical practice, social policy or business until recent decades, despite the publications of Kotelchuck et al. (1975), Kotelchuck (1976), Lamb (1975), Lamb and Lamb (1976) and others starting in the 1970s. President Barack Obama initiated a federal program, My Brother’s Keeper (Obama 2014), which helped to generate credibility for the importance of fatherhood. Now, in the public-health, federal funding, an ..read more

Statement from The Fatherhood Project Regarding George Floyd

3M ago
Reminded by yet another episode of racial violence with the death of George Floyd, we at The Fatherhood Project (TFP) stand in solidarity with Black Americans during this time of increased awareness in the white world of the pain that Black Americans have suffered for decades. Silence would constitute tacit acceptance of police brutality toward Black Americans, giving credence to the idea that African-Americans are inherently guilty and violent and that Black Americans are not as important or valued as White Americans. In short, silence serves as support for systemic racism and lack of justice ..read more

Why Paid Paternity Leave Matters
The Fatherhood Project | Connecting fathers and children

Knowing this, TFP has been working with Massachusetts General Hospital’s Obstetrics Department to create a more father and family friendly a ..read more
