Module 3: Fathers' Rights Discussion
A new federal law is being considered that would mandate that fathers be involved in some way with their children when the children have been placed in foster care. Some members of Congress, buttressed by groups supporting children’s rights, are strongly against this law, contending that fathers are often a negative influence on the children. Other members of Congress, buttressed by groups representing non-custodial fathers, are supporting the law, contending that fathers are a strong positive presence for their children, particularly if they’ve been placed in foster care due to action on the part of the custodial parent, most often the mother. You have been asked by the Department of Health and Human Services to conduct an evaluation using agency records from cooperating states to assess whether the influence of fathers has been positive or negative. Explain how you plan to go about conducting this evaluation and what the potential risks are. Include how you plan to try to mitigate some of the risks where possible.
