Daily Variation in Paternal Engagement and Negative Mood: Implications for Emotionally Supportive and Conflictual Interactions.
Almeida, David M.; Wethington, Elaine; McDonald, Daniel A.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v63 n2 p417-29 May 2001
Examines how daily variation in time fathers spend in child-care activities was related to emotionally supportive or conflictual father-child interactions and whether fathers' negative mood moderated these associations. Findings from the study suggest that when fathers spend more time with their children they are more likely to engage in supportive interactions, regardless of negative moods. (JDM)
