Latino fathers and parenting: lessons learned

Puerto Rican fathers and Latino fathers in general gave us many lessons for fatherhood research that we can learn from.

In conclusion, fathers were excited to be asked about their opinions about parenting. The men expressed that often they feel ignored by services and that providers often speak directly towards the mother, however, they felt just as knowledgeable and involved with their child as the mother. We need to continue to update our practices to involve Latino fathers with a culturally grounded approach that emphasizes the importance of close family relationships, interpersonal responsiveness, interdependence, personal dignity, and respect.
