Counseling Single Fathers pdf free download. The increase in single fathers’ custody is a result of changing trends in the law. During the era of Roman supremacy and the Middle Ages, men owned the children and therefore had the rights to them (Foster & Freed, 1978; Roman & Haddad, 1978; Vail, 1979). The seventeenth and eighteenth centuries
saw women becoming more prominent in the caretaking role and the invention of “maternal instinct” took place (Roman & Haddad, 1978; Vail, 1979). By the early 1900s custody was generally awarded to the. mother, particularly for those children of “tender years” (Foster & Freed, 1978; Roman & Haddad, 1978; Vail, 1979; Woody, 1978). Today a custody battle is on in many cases. With the “best interests of the child” as the basic criteria (Child Custody Act, 1970), more men are trying for and receiving custody of minor children through the courts (Orthner, Brown & Ferguson, 1976).
