Using data from 297 young fathers (ages 18 to 25) from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 Young Adult Survey, the authors examined the effects of self-reported closeness and contact with mothers and fathers during young adulthood on number of hours worked per week (first alone, then controlling for parent involvement during adolescence, then with background and risk factors). Young fathers' closeness to their fathers was associated with underemployment through all three models, and prior conviction predicted minimal work (0–19 hours). This suggests that young fathers receive critical emotional support from their own fathers during periods of underemployment in the transition to adulthood.
