"Cover Story" piece on the need for programs seeking to change the nature of the relationship between young men and their children. While social custom has for centuries interceded on behalf of young mothers, there are few programs designed to challenge the cycle of dysfunctional parenting, and develop in young fathers a sense of their own innate value and the positive impact they have on the lives of their children. With special focus on Paul Spear, Kenny Burns and Jesse McFadden who are participating in a unique mentoring program, the Young Father's Project, which is part of the 11-year-old Teen and Young Parent Program of Knox County. The project comes under the administration of the University of Maine's Cooperative Extension Service. With details about the program and statistics about births by age of the father in all Maine counties for the year 1999.
