Posted November 22, 2000; 09:53 p.m.
postdoctoral fellows in Princeton's Center for Research on Child Wellbeing will moderate a weeklong online chat about single fathers beginning Monday, Nov. 27.
Marcia J. Carlson and W. Bradford Wilcox will moderate the discussion about challenges facing single fathers and the policies and programs that can help them stay connected to their children. The chat is sponsored by Connect for Kids, an online publication of the Benton Foundation.

Recent findings by researchers at the Center for Research on Child Wellbeing have shattered myths about unmarried parents and single fathers. For example, their research shows that despite common perceptions to the contrary, most single dads want to play a role in raising their children.
Connect for Kids is an award-winning multimedia project of the Benton Foundation. The foundation works to shape the emerging communications environment in the public interest and bridge the worlds of philanthropy, public policy and community action.
