Father’s Day 2011

Father's Day 2011Father’s Day 2011, Father’s Day 2011 is celebrated this Sunday in many countries including the United States. This holiday once dusk has become widespread as the role of parents has changed over the years. This role or lack of it has been highlighted by a study by the Pew Research Center. The report shows trends in conflict over paternity in the United States. According to “A Tale of Two Fathers”, the presentation of which aptly coincides with Father’s Day 2011, married parents are more involved in raising children today compared to their counterparts 40 years ago. However, the percentage of parents who live apart from children has more than doubled in the last half century.

About 50 percent of men under 45 admit to having children outside of marriage and two out of three parents feel their role is much more difficult than it was three decades ago.

Pew survey reveals that more parents are involved in the care, a domain that was once only one of his wives. Parents now spend 6.5 hours per week in childcare, an increase of 2.6 hours in the 1960′s.

The hours spent together with the parent may rebound this weekend as Father’s Day 2011 falls on Sunday with family activities.

Psychologists have always insisted that the role of parents is crucial, if not absolutely essential in the formation of a good person, but is also beneficial to society as a whole.

“Father’s Day reminds parents that we have no most solemn obligation to care for our children,” said President Barack Obama on Wednesday. “But too many young people in the United States growing up without parents, and our families and communities are challenged as a result.”

Pew Study on Father’s Day 2011 is presented as the recent report shows that U.S. marriages have fallen to a record low and less than half the households in the country are headed by married couples.
