BACKES, Mariana Schubert; BECKER, Ana Paula Sesti; CREPALDI, Maria Aparecida  and  VIEIRA, Mauro Luís. Paternity and factors associated with paternal involvement. Nova perspect. sist. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.61, pp. 66-81. ISSN 0104-7841.

Currently, there is a change in the roles played by parents in interacting with their children. For example, paternity has become the target of scientific research recently, in view of the father's greater participation in the lives of his children. Thus, this research aimed to identify the factors that interfere in the paternal involvement of parents (men) of children between four and six years. It is an exploratory descriptive study, of qualitative nature, whose data were collected through a semi-structured interview; which was analyzed by the thematic categorical content analysis technique, using Atlas.ti software. From the analysis of the interviews emerged four categories: Paternity experience; Responsibility; Parent-child interaction and Factors that interfere with parental involvement. In this article the results of the last category will be presented, because they are directly related to the objective of this study. The results indicate that the participants' paternity model of their own parents, in addition to the relationships established with the child's mother, the personal characteristics of the parents and the children, and the support network they have, were constituted aspects that had repercussions on parental involvement.
