Reinforcement approach of fatherly personality through participation in parenting programs

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A good fatherly personality is an important issue which needs to be given attention in order to overcome problems related to household and family. This is because there is evidence which shows that today in Malaysia family problems and cases are associated with the father such as irascibility, neglect of responsibilities, child abuse, incest and so on. Hence, this research is conducted to identify respondents among fathers who participated in parental programs as a step toward reinforcing good fatherly personality and to analyze the factors for fathers' lack of involvement in parenting programs and activity. This is a quantitative research using a survey study of 220 respondents who were selected through stratified random sampling among fathers at the National Population and Family Development Board (hereafter mentioned as LPPKN) and Department of Social Welfare (JKM). Data obtained through questionnaire is descriptively analyzed using SPSS. Research results find that the majority of respondents who participated in parenting programs in efforts to strengthen good fatherly personality achieved a mean score =3.46. However, there are fathers who lacked involvement in parenting programs based on certain factors such as preoccupation with career, laziness, presumption that such programs are unimportant, disinterest, forced participation by employers, unavailability of babysitter for children, unavailability of information on program, stress, financial problem and unattractive program contents and topic. Research implications may help fathers reinforce their fatherly personality towards family wellbeing. Research also suggests that Malaysian authorities responsible such as LPPKN, JKM and so on organize parenting and family programs so that knowledge of the Islamic approach to strengthen fatherly personality may be applied.
