Fathering over Time: What Makes the Difference?
Aldous, Joan; Mulligan, Gail M.; Bjarnason, Thoroddur
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v60 n4 p809-20 Nov 1998
Examines how much fathers participate in child care and factors related to it. Findings indicate that hours on the job keep some men from active fathering, but if they begin taking care of young children, a continuing pattern is established. Mothers' child-care hours are positively related to fathers' child care, and fathers do more with sons. (Author/MKA)
