Our result indicates that fathers in prison do care of their children and they think that they are good fathers and great role models. The criminal fathers talk about the importance to be honest with their children. The professionals do not have the same opinion as the fathers. They think that the criminal fathers are “not good enough” fathers. If they take responsibility for their criminal actions they can be good fathers and great role models. The professional works to support the criminal fathers can be better fathers and better citizens after served in jail time. In our analysis we have used theoretical concepts such as fatherhood, masculinity and deviant behavior such as stigma and handling of stigma. (Less)
