The Impact of Gender on Family Life - ... Sociologists generally do not present males as playing an active role in the network (Hansen 182). General research shows men’s ambivalence towards the interdependence and domesticity necessarily connected to networks of care and rearing children. While Men elaborate their ideological beliefs, they have little to say about children’s everyday activities, and what they do say is vague and misleading (182). Robert strives to go beyond that role and be a significant part of his son’s life. He does not view himself as just a breadwinner; “Whatever Robbie needs is where I come in” (189)....   [tags: Gender Studies]
