Abstract

A common philosophy asserts that "you can't miss something you never had." The wisdom of this saying is debatable in situations where boys' fathers are unknown to them. This paper presents a child-inclusive intervention for families comprised of single mothers and their sons who have never met or have no memory of their fathers. The relationships between daughters and their absent fathers are also important but beyond the scope of this paper.
