Are you or do you know a stay at home dad? If so a University of Cambridge researcher is looking for participants to take part in a novel study of stay-at-home fathers and their families.
The study will look at child development and family relationships in families where the father stays at home to look after his children most or all of the time. It is being conducted by PhD student Kitty Jones who is at the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Family Research.
Kitty says: “Fathers are doing more childcare than ever before, yet these fathers are underrepresented within research. We hope the study will support fathers who are primary caregivers, and will inform both public understanding and policy about different family set-ups.”
The Centre is looking to recruit full or part-time stay-at-home fathers to be involved in the research. Interviews will be conducted with partners and children too. The families will receive £10 as a thank-you for taking part. The location, day and time of the interviews are flexible.
All the data collected will be kept confidential and the study has ethical approval. Participants can withdraw from the study at any point, and emailing the address below does not commit anyone to taking part.
