Hudson et al. (2003) – Effects of the New Fathers Network on First-time Fathers’ Parenting Self-efficacy and Parenting Satisfaction during the Transition to Parenthood

Abstract

The effectiveness of an Internet-based intervention, the New Fathers Network, was tested in improving first-time fathers’ parenting self-efficacy and parenting satisfaction during the first 8 weeks following their infants’ birth as compared with no intervention (Comparison Group). Parenting self-efficacy and satisfaction scores for the Intervention Group significantly improved from 4 to 8 weeks; parenting self-efficacy and satisfaction scores for the Comparison Group to which no intervention was given did not change significantly. Participants were primarily satisfied with the New Fathers Network.
