Discussion
As noted earlier, one positive aspect of examining accounts in a case study approach is
the ability to obtain rich information and description about experience from the participant’s
point of view. Much about the single-father experience and the single-father/child relationship
was illuminated through the course of this study and are discussed below.
Single-fathers seemed to lean toward more traditional attitudes regarding family and
support, yet seemed more nontraditional in terms of their acceptance of interracial relationships.
Some single-fathers did report that it was difficult trying to “wear two hats” or fulfill two roles.
Due to the fulfillment of two roles, single-fathers engaged in both the breadwinner role as well as
the role of caretaker and nurturer, demonstrating that the two roles need not be bipolar opposites.
