Recently, interest in families has increased amongst researchers, practitioners and policymakers in England. This includes a renewed focus on understanding parenting and supporting families through parenting programmes. Many programmes demonstrate positive outcomes for mothers and children, but do not typically consider the coparenting between mothers and fathers. Additionally, most evaluations overlook the ‘process of change’ or ‘active ingredients’ for promoting change in parenting practices. ...

Risk-taking behaviors (RTBs) can cause (1) psychological, social, health, and economic problems; (2) physical injury; (3) legal entanglements; and (4) death. Attachment insecurity, corporal punishment, and impulsivity are risk factors for engaging in RTB. The present study is the first to examine all three of these predictors and their interactions for a broad spectrum of RTBs (i.e. academic risk, risky long-term health behaviors (RLTHBs), reckless driving, drug use, drinking, antisocial behavio...

While family relations can at best offer attachment, love, and nurture, at worst they can be enervating, neglectful, and oppressive. In this article, narratives on the father–son relationship in the context of the father’s alcohol problems are identified and discussed. Adult sons who have lived with problem-drinking fathers are given a voice through interviews, and their life stories explored. What kinds of narratives are found in sons’ life stories that deal with the father–son relationship? Ho...

This study tests a dyadic model in which parental attachment recollected from adolescence [namely, the dimension of inhibition of exploration and individuality (IEI)] would predict fear of intimacy through the mediating role of adult romantic attachment (avoidance and attachment). Data were collected from 249 romantic couples in a relationship for more than 2 years. After controlling for age and relationship status, we found a partner-anxiety effect on female fear of intimacy (namely, female fea...

This study aims to (a) examine the links between adolescents’ memories of authoritative, authoritarian, and permissive parenting styles and parent–child communicative processes; (b) test adolescents’ and parents’ gender differences. Data were collected from 479 Italian adolescents (Mage = 16.62 years; SDage = 1.46) attending public high schools. Participants completed Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire and Parental Solicitation and Child Disclosure scales. Results indicated that memor...

This special section includes four studies of coparenting and children’s development in European families and one concluding paper commenting on the studies and projecting future directions. For two decades, research has shown the central role of coparenting dynamics in child’s development in diverse families systems. Research reported in this section was conducted in four different European countries and highlights focal perspectives both for research and for practice.

This paper explores fathering over children’s early years, using longitudinal time-use data for children at ages 0–1, 2–3 and 4–5 years. These Australian data provide information about children’s total and solo time with fathers and mothers on weekdays and weekends. This unique large-scale dataset allows analyses of changes in children’s time with fathers as they grow and with contextual changes such as increases in parental work hours. Taking account of mothers’ return to work, which may mean c...

In this study we use time-diary data from Denmark, Spain, and the United Kingdom to analyze how fathers’ child care differs across countries with distinct gender norms, family policies, and maternal employment rates. We pay particular attention to the role of mothers’ paid work time in influencing paternal child care. Results show that Danish fathers display the most involved child care behavior. Spanish fathers spend more time in child care than UK fathers, but Spanish fathers are less egalitar...

Meta-parenting is a construct that refers to parents’ thought processes as they employ and assess parenting strategies based on their child’s behavior and perceptions of his/her developmental course. The present study examined the associations among parenting self-efficacy, positive relational maintenance, parent and child characteristics, and meta-parenting in heterosexual parents of young children. Mother’s level of education was positively associated with her maintenance behaviors and fathers...

Over time, social expectations of fathers in Germany have changed, from biological siring to protection, to providing, and lately to nurturing of children (including childcare, emotional support, and education). We empirically model the contemporary German ideal of fathering using a sample of 691 German citizens from ages 18 to 92, selected from resident registration lists in 2006 in four economically typological regions: Northwest, urban city-state, East, and South. Two-thirds of respondents id...
