“More than 150 years after the Industrial Revolution had removed most fathers from their homes for the working day, fathers – in their millions – were coming home.” (Burgess & Goldman, 2021)
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about far-reaching change for families across the globe. The impacts of the pandemic and resulting restrictions on the father-child relationship have rarely been researched so far.
This study wants to give fathers a voice and look for possible answers:
- How did fathers experience the impacts of the pandemic and its restrictions (esp. lockdown) on the relationship with their children?
- How did fathers’ caregiving role in the family change over the course of the last two years?
- In what ways did the nature of fathers’ caregiving affect their
- relationships with their children, both positively and negatively?
The study will use the Meaning of the Child interview (Motc) to explore these questions.
With your participation, you can make a valuable contribution to better our understanding of the experiences and impacts of the pandemic, specifically on fathers, their children and families.
Participation involves an interview of about an hour, which you can be done online via the secure software Micro-soft Teams.
