The Relationship between Academic Stress and Two Aspects of Father Involvement among University Student Fathers
Masciadrelli, Brian P.; Milardo, Robert M.
College Student Journal, v42 n2 p675-683 Jun 2008
This study investigated the associations between academic stress experienced by university student fathers and the behavioral and cognitive involvement these fathers had with their children. Fifty-three fathers enrolled in university classes and residing with at least one child less than 12 years of age responded to questionnaire measures of academic stress, behavioral father involvement, and cognitive father involvement. Contrary to expectations, academic stress was not negatively associated with behavioral father involvement and, in fact, showed no relationship. As expected, academic stress was significantly and negatively associated with cognitive father involvement. (Contains 2 tables.)
