Timing of Fatherhood: Is "On-Time" Optimal?
Cooney, Teresa M.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n1 p205-15 Feb 1993
Analyzed fathers (n=307) from nationally representative sample to explore relationship between timing of fatherhood and men's parenting behavior and paternal affect. Differences were found on multidimensional typology of paternal behavior and affect. Compared to "on-time" fathers, "late" fathers were more likely to be classified as highly involved with positive parental affect. (Author/NB)
