McBride, Brent A.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v6 n2 p137-49 Jun 1991
Examined the effects of a parent support program designed to help fathers cope with paternal role stress. Results indicated that such intervention programs may be effective in reducing fathers' perceived parental stress at becoming more actively involved in child raising. Implications for further research on paternal stress and for the development of support programs for fathers were discussed. (Author/GR)
