Title
Images and Reality of Fatherhood: A Case Study of Montreal’s Protestant Middle-Class, 1870-1914
Abstract
An examination of reform literature, custody decisions and fiction during the period under review suggests that providing for his family’s material needs was a father’s first duty. These same sources suggest that mothers were entrusted with the emotional elements of child-rearing. The author concludes, based on an examination of middle-class Montreal Protestant fathers, that many of these men appear to have created nurturing relationships with their children.
