The Study of Fatherhood Participation in Taiwan Immigrant Families
The purpose of this study is to draw attention to the current situation of “Adolescents’ Fatherhood Participation” in Taiwan immigrant families, the difference between families with different background variables, and the correlation between “the participation of fatherhood,” “the accommodation of children” and “the relationship of parent-child.” In order to achieve the above purpose, the study used the method of Stratified Random Sampling aiming at junior high school children in Taiwan’s immigrant families. It took samples from four regions in Taiwan (North, Middle, South, East) and chose 427 children from the Southern and-Eastern immigrant families for the objects of the study. The discoveries of the study were listed as follows: First, compared to Taiwanese regular families, children in immigrant families were more likely to feel like their fathers do not often participate in their lives in the areas such as “supporting them with money,” “giving substantial companionship,” “showing concern on their school work,” “disciplining their behaviors” and “taking care of their daily lives.” Second, the poorer the marital relationship between the couple was, the poorer the socioeconomic status was, and the worse the participation of fatherhood was. Last but not least, there’s a positive correlation between these three factors: “the fatherhood participation of immigrant families,” “the accommodation of children.” and “the relationship of parent-child.” According to the results above, the study would put forward a few suggestions for central government agencies, local county and city governments, schools and family education centers to establish policies related to family education and promote various activities.
