A Comparison of Mother and Father Reports of Father Involvement

Lauren Rinelli, Bowling Green State University

Typically, mother reports have been the sole source for studying father involvement. The current study will expand on prior literature that has compared mother and father reports of father involvement by utilizing all four waves of the Fragile Families and Child Well-Being study to conduct an HLM analysis of the discrepancy between reports. Implications and suggestions for future research are discussed.
