Abstract/ Summary

While workplace hassles often spill over into the home and deter dad's interaction with the children, academic stress on student fathers might be more a matter of having too much on their minds. The stress of exams, grades and term papers doesn't appear to affect fathers' overall participation or responsibility in meeting their children's physical, emotional and social needs, according to a study by a University of Maine graduate student. However, school-related stress can cloud dads' mental focus on their children during the day.
