Väter und Vaterschaft heute. Der Einfluss der Väter auf die by Laura Trümper

By Laura Trümper

Vordiplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Familienerziehung, be aware: 1,0, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am major, 19 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Da in der Forschung der letzten Jahrzehnte die Väter oft vernachlässigt und erst in den letzten Jahren in den Fokus genommen wurden (vgl. Martin 1979: 26), soll es in meiner Arbeit um die Rolle des Vaters im europäischen Raum in der Erziehung und Sozialisation seiner Kinder gehen. Des Öfteren wurden die Väter in diesem Bereich vernachlässigt, aber auch sie haben neben den Müttern ihre Bedeutung in der kindlichen Erziehung und können ihren Beitrag zu einer positiven Entwicklung ihrer Kinder leisten.
Von der Benachteiligung der Frauen in unserer Gesellschaft wurde und wird oft gesprochen. Diese möchte ich keineswegs bestreiten, doch sollten wir nicht vergessen, dass es auch Bereiche gibt, in denen eindeutig die Männer benachteiligt sind. Das challenge der Frauen in der Vereinigung von Familie und Berufstätigkeit ist bekannt, aber gerade diese Problematik ist auch eine der Väter – vielleicht sogar im stärkeren Maße – da die Mehrzahl der Väter berufstätig ist und auch sie für ihre Familie da sein wollen, bzw. sollten. (vgl. Matzner 2004: 116f) Wir müssen den Blick auf beide Seiten richten, da wir sonst eine verfälschte Sicht vorfinden, welche nicht der Realität entspricht.
Die Vaterschaft hat sich in den letzten Jahrzehnten verändert. Väter sind heute nicht mehr die autoritären unnahbaren Überväter, oft wollen sie ihren Kindern auch emotional näher kommen und sich aktiv an ihrer Erziehung beteiligen.
Was macht die Väter zu Vätern? In welcher shape hat sich Ihre Rolle verändert? Wie sieht die heutige place der Väter in der Familie aus? Welche Beziehung haben Väter zu ihren Kindern? Welche Bedeutung haben sie in der Erziehung? Und welche Differenzen bestehen zwischen der Vater- und der Mutter-Rolle? – Dies sind nur einige Fragen, denen diese Arbeit auf den Grund gehen wird.
