Identity Theory as a Guide to Understanding Fathers' Involvement with Their Children.
Rane, Thomas R.; McBride, Brent A.
Journal of Family Issues, v21 n3 p347-66 Apr 2000
Using identity theory to explore father's involvement with their children, 89 married couples with preschool children completed questionnaires and interviews on how involved they were in child-rearing activities. Results indicated that fathers did not differ on any involvement measures. However, fathers who considered the nurturing role highly central to their sense of self engaged in significantly more interactions. (Author/JDM)
