Consumer Reports

Single dads need flexibility, too | (UPI) -- Business in America has responded to single moms who need flexible scheduling but single dads are growing in number and need help as well. The U.S. Census Bureau's report on American Families and Living Arrangements says single father families grew from 393,000 in 1970 to more than 2 million in 2000.

"Our studies have shown that among married moms, single moms, married dads and single dads, single fathers were the least satisfied with their child-care arrangements," says Carol Erdwins, a clinical psychologist at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. One reason is single fathers do not have the social support from other dads like mothers have with each other.

For companies, single dads are almost an afterthought and they often are not aware of what child-care services are available, services, which traditionally have been for women.
