A positive father-child relationship is thought to make a significant impact on multiple domains of child and adolescent development. According to previous research by Keown and colleagues (2018), fathers’ involvement in children’s lives can help promote positive child and adolescent outcomes. Neighborhood conditions have also been found to be a predictor of children’s developmental outcomes. This study focuses on how father involvement as well as the neighborhood environment are related to children’s social and emotional well-being. The current study hypothesized that a positive father-child relationship will predict better child outcomes, especially in disadvantaged neighborhood environments. Hypotheses will be tested using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth - 1979.
