There are several ways to conceptualize fathers' impact on children. This brief provides one way that emphasizes three areas to consider when thinking about father involvement. These three areas are engagement and interaction; availability and accessibility; and day-to-day care. Some variations in programs and outcomes exist because of differences in the cultural, demographic, and socioeconomic backgrounds of the populations presented in the research.
