Abstract: The purpose of this project is to study the factors that influence paternal involvement and consider how involvement affects ideas of fatherhood. I interviewed eighteen fathers for approximately an hour, including six stay-at-home fathers and twelve working fathers. The interview progressed from basic background questions to descriptions of their daily routines and ended with questions about their relationship to their children and their ideas about important qualities in a good father. I found some fathers were more involved in childcare because they believed in the intensive parenting ideology, but they were not as involved in the housework, because they did not believe it was as important. Mothers still do the majority of the housework and the planning, possibly because they still feel the burden of social norms. The significance of this study is that it helps to find ways to promote equal sharing in families. Fathers' involvement is directly related to how much they accept the intensive parenting ideology. The definition of fatherhood is tied to what a father actually does in the household. Whether a father participates depends on how important he believes getting involved is.
