Egyesült államokbeli apák gyakorlati szerepvállalása a kisgyermekgondozásban


  • Diána Árki



In my review of the literature, I aim to present the roles that men play in caring for their young children in the US. On weekdays, the father continues to be primarily a breadwinner, while the image of a fully involved “new father” appears mainly at the weekends. Men are primarily involved in activities that are related to free time and direct interaction to their children. The father’s role in childcare can be influenced by individual social and economic status, such as income, education, labour market position and available time; and also, by his attitude to different gender roles, value priorities and religiosity.
