Abstract/ Summary

As sons become fathers and confront the same realities and societal expectation to provide for their families, they recognize but tend to forgive their fathers' failings. They apply the positive experiences of their upbringing to their own fathering skills and rework the negative to avoid repeating perceived mistakes, according to research at the University of Maine.
