What Influences Paternal Childcare Involvement From Nine Months To Eleven Years Post Birth In The UK?

Conference presentation – 2nd September 2021

Helen presented a paper that shows how our measures of paternal childcare engagement were derived using survey data from the Millennium Cohort Study. We use these measures to explore what influences paternal engagement from nine months to eleven years post-birth. The presentation reflects on some of the first findings from this analysis.

We will use these measures in our forthcoming analysis to explore how they might affect children’s educational outcomes.

Professor Jennifer Tomlinson (University of Leeds) speaks to Helen about her research on what enables or hinders fathers’ childcare involvement, and how ways of working and caring in a child’s pre-school years sets up a pattern of caregiving that persists as the child grows older. Helen reflects on her earlier research and introduces this new project on father involvement and children’s education.
