Most traditional parenting curricula seek to get the parent to “do something different.” Many traditional parenting curricula are inadequate to address the beliefs held by men who batter and abuse. These curricula often seek to get fathers to change their behaviors without addressing the underlying beliefs that support them. Addressing fatherhood with abusive and violent parents requires a process that seeks to change the underlying beliefs that justify the violent and abusive behaviors. A key method to begin this process is to look at and examine the impacts and effects of the core beliefs related to parenting.
