Summary
Social scientists and practitioners agree that the influence fathers have on their children's development is complex, multifaceted and varies across subculture. This study focused on the fathers of Black/White interracial families. Specifically, the purpose was to more fully understand (a) how fathers in interracial families define their role in the ethnic identity formation process for their children; (b) what specific parental practices fathers report in regards to the ethnic identity process for their children; and (c) what fathers think about the role of others (e.g., family, friends, role models) in this process. A qualitative research approach, which lends itself to the exploration of new topics, was used. Fourteen fathers of Black/White biracial children were interviewed. Results indicated that fathers were highly involved in their children's lives and very intentional in their parenting practices. When compared with research findings regarding practices that support ethnic identity formation in biracial children, however, their parenting practices fell short. The need for education and support for parents of biracial children on supporting identity development was evident
