Additional Information: a. Children in stepfamilies and their non-resident parents b. Normative theoretical approach utilizing investigator-led semi-structured interviews with children and their resident parents. Analyses were primarily descriptive. c. In contrast to much of the research on parenting by non-resident fathers which focuses exclusively on the structural variables of contact, this study also investigates qualitative aspects of parenting by non-resident fathers, primarily from children’s perspectives. Qualitative variables proved to be better predictors of outcomes such as child health and well-being. d. e. Findings were based mainly on data from a community sample of 113 children who had had contact with their non-resident father in the previous year. These children formed part of a representative community sample of 184 stepfamilies, in existence between one and three years, identified by means of a large scale screening exercise conducted via schools in three areas. f.
