Poll: Fathers Really Do Know Best

June 11, 2007


Helena, MT - Fathers really do know best, according to a new poll about stopping and preventing domestic violence and sexual assault. The Family Violence Prevention Fund poll shows most Montana fathers know they have a role to play in the mission. Lynne Lee with the Fund says that's important since violent responses and actions are often passed on from generation to generation.

“They're talking to their kids, and I think there's a lot of good news in that they're having those conversations with the next generation.”

The poll results compared to those five years ago, show a big jump in the number of men who say they are taking action to stop domestic violence and sexual assault. Part of the reason may be the dozens of domestic violence action groups in Montana that offer support and information, as well as their work in raising public awareness.

But, Lee adds that it takes more than talk to stop the cycle of violence.

“You model the correct behavior, the non-violent behavior, and you show through your actions that's there's a right way to have a relationship and a wrong way to have a relationship.”
