"To answer the provocative question 'Do fathers matter?, ' Paul Raeburn draws extensively on cutting-edge science, animal research, neurobiology, and large-population studies. Anyone interested in parenthood, human development, and culture must read this thoughtful book."--Gretchen Ruben, bestselling author of "Happier at Home" and "The Happiness Project ""A must-read book for anyone who cares about the well-being of children, "Do Fathers Matter?" is ascientifically rigorous paean to the importance of fathers. Writing with grace and clarity, Paul Raeburnturns conventional wisdom on its head and places fathers, right alongside mothers, on a welldeservedpedestal."--Susan Cain, bestselling author of "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking ""A thoughtful, sensitive, and nuanced exploration of how fathers enrich the lives of children."--Robert E. Emery, Director of the Center for Children, Families, and the Law at the University of Virginia, and author of "The Truth About Children and Divorce""Dispelling one myth after another, "Do Fathers Matter?" offers a detailed, state-of-the-art map of a much neglected and misunderstood terrain--the unique, complex, and powerful role fathers play in the healthy development of children. From anthropological studies to the latest brain research, Paul Raeburn gives us a thorough, eye-opening, and moving account that will change your vision of men in families forever. A tour de force."-- Terry Real, family therapist, founder of the Relational Life Institute, and bestselling author of "I Don't Want to Talk About It," "How Can I Get Through to You?," and "The New Rules of Marriage ""Outdated myths and perceptions about fatherhood continue to exist, but Paul Raeburn's comprehensive, scientific approach lays them all to waste. If you doubt a father's importance or capabilities as a parent, this indispensable read should change your mind."--Doug French


For too long, we’ve thought of fathers as little more than sources of authority and economic stability in the lives of their children. Yet cutting-edge studies drawing unexpected links between fathers and children are forcing us to reconsider our assumptions and ask new questions: What changes occur in men when they are “expecting”? Do fathers affect their children’s language development? What are the risks and rewards of being an older-than-average father at the time the child is born? What happens to a father’s hormone levels at every stage of his child’s development, and can a child influence the father’s health? Just how much do fathers matter?

In Do Fathers Matter? the award-winning journalist and father of five Paul Raeburn overturns the many myths and stereotypes of fatherhood as he examines the latest scientific findings on the parent we’ve often overlooked. Drawing on research from neuroscientists, animal behaviorists, geneticists, and developmental psychologists, among others, Raeburn takes us through the various stages of fatherhood, revealing the profound physiological connections between children and fathers, from conception through adolescence and into adulthood—and the importance of the relationship between mothers and fathers. In the process, he challenges the legacy of Freud and mainstream views of parental attachment, and also explains how we can become better parents ourselves.

Ultimately, Raeburn shows how the role of the father is distinctly different from that of the mother, and that embracing fathers’ significance in the lives of young people is something we can all benefit from. An engrossing, eye-opening, and deeply personal book that makes a case for a new perspective on the importance of fathers in our lives no matter what our family structure, Do Fathers Matter? will change the way we view fatherhood today.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An empowering book for fathers, and enlightening for everybody else! 4. Juni 2014
Von Dennis Meredith - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This fascinating, clearly written book contains a wealth of information about fathers’ importance to their children—both psychological and biological. Conversely, it explores how children affect their fathers—again both psychologically and biologically. The book should be a must-read for fathers, mothers, family psychologists, and any other professionals who deal with family issues. It should also be a standard text in any course about the family. The author answers the book’s title question “Do Fathers Matter?” with a resounding yes! And he offers the eye-opening evidence to back that answer up. This evidence comes from not only studies involving humans, but those on fathering in monkeys, birds, mice, rats, and voles. When I was reading the book, I marked with sticky notes the information I found most interesting and surprising. I ran out of sticky notes and ended up with a book festooned with them!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I've been waiting for this ... 17. Juni 2014
Von Harriet Washington - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
book and who better to deliver the not-so-obvious answer to this question in the title? Science has too long regarded Mom as the walking incubator of her childrens' character and fortunes, while Dad was relegated to near-irrelevance. But award-winning writer Paul Raeburn delivers the definitive science governing fatherhood in a delicious, wide-ranging discussion of the "parent we've overlooked."

We learn the often-surprising ways in which Dad shapes his childrens' medical fates. But Raeburn has achieved more. His evenhanded, mature tone flies above the facile jealousies that too often hijack such discussions. Early on, for example, he takes care to note that "The evidence shows that fathers make important and unique contributions to their children in many ways. It emphatically does not show that the children in families without fathers in the home are doomed to failure, or anything close to that. "
Read this book: You'll learn a lot, and love it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's Dad's Turn. Finally 16. Juni 2014
Von Randi Epstein - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you are going to read a book about fathers, you might as well get one by a veteran science writer who knows how to weave solid data into a page-turning narrative. Get this book for your father, for your mother, for your children's father, and for yourself, if you are curious about the science and history (and future) of parenting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fathers Do Matter - It's Science 21. Juli 2014
Von L. Curran - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As a new dad myself I found the book to be a refreshing affirmation of my own desire to be actively involved in my son's early life. Raeburn uses scientific studies to weave a compelling narrative that clearly drives home the point - yes, fathers do matter. Companies should use the evidence he presents to provide better family-friendly and paternity leave policies.
