FATHER'S DAY IS coming up and we at Kids These Days! thought it the perfect time to explore the role of fathers through history. How have dads changed, and how have they stayed the same through wars, civil rights movements and shifting economic times? We'll learn about the growing Alaska Native Fatherhood Movement and the groups that advocate for an active, engaged father (or father figure) in every child's life - and why it matters.
PLUS, we'll hear about organized fatherhood efforts in Kake and other rural areas of Alaska; and we take a look at dads on TV from the 1950's to the present when we discuss why should we care how Pop is portrayed in pop culture.
