POLLI, Rodrigo Gabbi; GABRIEL, Marília Reginato; PICCININI, Cesar Augusto  y  LOPES, Rita de Cassia Sobreira. Fathers’ involvement during the baby’s 12 months. Psico (Porto Alegre) [online]. 2016, vol.47, n.3, pp. 198-208. ISSN 1980-8623.

This study aimed to investigate the paternal involvement of 35 parents (18 to 40 years old), whose child was 12 months old. The fathers answered an interview and their answers were examined through qualitative content analysis, based on three dimensions of paternal involvement: interaction, availability and responsibility. Fathers reported getting involved with the child according to the specific needs and skills of 12 months old when the baby becomes more responsive. However, some parents reported not having the necessary skill to take care of a baby, which can contribute to a reduced involvement with the child. The study results evidence that fathers have showed the competency to deal with a baby with new skills, even if, at times, they seemed to have difficulty or even preferred that the mother perform certain activities.

Palabras clave : Father involvement; Father child relations; Paternity.
