There is a new paradigm for fathering in the Millennium.  It is a shift from the older model of the distant, unavailable, uninvolved male parent (who emphasized dominance and control) to an involved, emotionally and physically present father (who emphasizes a more shared, cooperative, helpful style).  I term this paradigm shift in male power: from “Power-over” toward “Power-To.”  This holds potential benefits for children, women/mothers, and for these men/fathers.
