By Luciano Rabasedas

Es l. a. metamorfosis de un padre observador de los angeles familia a otro que es participante pleno de los angeles misma. Es los angeles conversión de un arquetipo tradicional de padre caracterizado por los angeles distancia en otro más próximo a sus hijos en todo sentido. Es l. a. transformación de una paternidad que ocupa un papel secundario frente a los angeles maternidad hacia otra que tiende a igualar ambos aspectos.

En suma: estamos viendo padres más involucrados en l. a. crianza y el cuidado de sus hijos y, lo que es mejor, que no dudan en mostrarlo ni manifestarlo.

La nueva paternidad es una obra vital para todos aquellos padres que entienden que el amor y los cuidados tempranos dejaron de ser exclusividad de las mujeres y que sin temor a perder su virilidad, desean participar desde el comienzo en los angeles crianza de los hijos.
