What's it all about?
The main goal of this study is to gather information about fathers who have babies under one year of age. We want to understand how fathers cope with being the father of a baby, what stresses them out, what they feel good about, what they feel bad about, and how they view their role as a father.  Results from this study will help inform the development of services for fathers.  Fathers are so often left out of research in child development and this study is just one example of a growing recognition of how important fathers are in the lives of their children...especially their babies!

Why do it?
Because your participation is an easy way to contribute to our knowledge about fathers and will help us learn about ways to support fathers.

Make sure you qualify:
Can you answer yes to all of these questions?

You're good to go!
