Throughout the country, organizations are
focusing on the issue of absentee fathers and all its attendant
disturbing effects and statistics. “Fathers, Inc. recognizes
the need to reaffirm an understanding of the benefit of fathers to the
family,” says Kenneth Braswell, Executive Director. Though to
do so our main focus will be on the development of fathers, we
recognize that there is also a need for maternal involvement and
development specifically as those things intersect around parental
Fathers, Inc. is a not-for-profit agency
dedicated to strengthening the community and family infrastructure by
encouraging and enabling the positive involvement of fathers in the
lives of their children. We will do this by increasing awareness of
father's rights and responsibilities, the programmatic impact through
community collaborations, providing support services, training, and
assistance to fathers in need of sustenance and direction.
“When the Tear Won't
Fall” will be unique in the sense that many books written on
the subject of fatherhood tend to be in the categories of self-help,
humor, poetry and how-to. The book will highlight the stories of
fathers who have overcome obstacles, and how their life's choices
impacted them as fathers. In some instances, the stories will detail
how they failed and what it means/meant to them and their children.
The book will also:
- Help others to appreciate the struggles
of today's father;
- Provide for the gathering of information
necessary to produce effective programs, support and services that will
encourage, re-establish and strengthen the abilities of men to be
productive and positive fathers; and
- Establish the importance of fatherhood by
giving national attention to the impact of the absentee father, for
both the father and the family.
The book project seeks to profile the
changing image of fatherhood in our society. It will reinforce and
reestablish for many that fathers are a critical part of the productive
and positive functioning of the family. Because of the changing
configuration of family and the increase in absentee fathers, at a most
critical time in this society, these letters will explore what it means
to be a father, and offer some insight on how to be a good father.
Guidelines, requirements, deadlines for
submitting letters can be obtained by visiting our website at www.fathersinc.org .
The book is due out by Christmas 2005.
