China notes US "Fatherhood gap" between lower, upper middle class

China Radio International June 20 - "Modern Fatherhood.The US is facing a growing "fatherhood gap", with children in wealthy families spending substantially more time with their fathers. Changes in the expectations for fathers are creating new challenges, sometimes leading to depression."
Guests: Paul Schenk, Clinical psychologist; Will CourtenayPhD, LCSW, "The Men's Doc", McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Author of Dying to Be Men.
I listened to this and it was thoughtful and insightful - we hear about the class-based marriage gap but it may take a foreign power to point out that cultural developments in modern fatherhood also vary dramatically by economic class, education etc. It also looks at the dynamics of child-raising in an intact family and how some fathers, too, can develop a form of post-partum depression.
