I’m not suggesting that both the “Dove Real Beauty” and the “Dove Real Strength” campaigns are completely without benefit, as there is value in their ability to signal boost new healthier narratives about gender, beauty, relationships, and parenting to the masses, but as savvy consumers of both products and media we should expect and demand more. Louis and Kansas City […] September is National Baby Safety Month. Fact: "The inflated figures of between 10 and 30 per cent have their origins in some very questionable research... the most recent evidence, based upon medical records, sex surveys, DNA testing laboratories and genetic studies... suggests relatively low rates of misattributed paternity in Western countries" with figures realistically between one and 3 percent, but probably closer to one percent.

No big fancy fatherhood magazines, no Oprah for dads, no real exchange of fatherhood improvement programs.

Fathers, in effect, give children practice in regulating their own emotions and recognizing others' emotional clues."

The rush to grow up, perhaps? “Xuheng, remember, must always hold Papa’s hand when you walk, ok?” I said, as I tightened my fingers around your little palm.

It is easier to believe that his traumatized, sleepless, frightened and rapidly impoverished wife is lying, exaggerating or imagining things. Reinforce partnerships with local Offices of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) to develop collaborative educational programs on child support income; work closely with OCSE to build supportive components in child support collection and enforcement policies (arrears forgiveness programs, etc).

Healthy relationships with spouses, partners, and children can have positive effects on employment, earnings, and recidivism; likewise, employment, earnings, and economic stability can positively impact the health of relationships and rates of recidivism.
