Current Connections: Fathers and sons

The Illusion offers a portrait of the complex dynamics of the relationships between parents and children, especially fathers and sons.  A number of current studies have focused on the impact of fathers on the well-being of children.  What is salient to you about the research presented? What is your own experience as parent and/or as child? How does this play out in The Illusion?
