Fatherlove

a book by Richard Louv

(our site's book review)

Fathers play with kids fairly often, but are usually absent when it comes to caregiving. The average dad interacts with his baby less than 38 seconds a day. He warns us that the answer isn’t a political or social engineering one—reinvigorating the grassroots community is the main strategy needed. He quotes John McKnight’s book, Social Policy:

McKnight says “Despite legions of therapists, social workers, and bureaucrats, we have created crime-making correctional systems, sickness-making health systems and stupid-making schools. This system is set up for failure because it excludes the most important component of society: the community, the social sphere made up of family, friends, neighbors . . .”

He is advising us also to correct the misguided habit of policy makers of seeing a world that is based upon what each person lacks. Communities need to build on capacity, talents, assets, resources, character and potential, as they did in times past; only after all of this is a fait accompli should deficiencies be analyzed.

We have created sickness-making health systems; this system is set up for failure because it excludes the most important component of society: community
