Overview

Psychology "discovered" the importance of the father to their children's development about 20 years ago, according to Flourini (Centre for Research into Parenting and Children, U. of Oxford). To frame her research since 2000 on fathering and child well- being, she examines the role of fatherhood from historical and role theory contexts. From her investigation of resident and nonresident father's involvement with their school-aged children utilizing data from major longitudinal UK studies, she identifies factors shaping their engagement level and influence on mental health, educational, social, and economic outcomes, and reasons for mixed findings on the impact of this relationship.
