Supporting Fathers and Mothers as Coparents:
The Next Frontier for Infant Toddler Mental Health

Supporting Fathers and Mothers as Coparents

In this issue of Zero to Three, we are delighted to collaborate with Guest Editors James McHale and Vicky Phares, professors at the University of South Florida, to explore how fathers are included in services to families with very young children. The articles in this issue describe a new impetus to move from focusing on the mothers and their children to a focus on the family system. We hope that the information presented here provides inspiration and a call to action for concentrated and systematic efforts to more effectively support and engage both fathers and mothers as coparents in the care of their children in all we do.
