The objectives of this thesis are:

1. To contribute to the contemporary agenda on research into fatherhood by focusing on the successes and difficulties of fathers being more involved in the intimate care of their children.

2. To contribute to the understanding of how traditional discourses on fatherhood and masculinity may affect involved fathers' ability to nurture children.

3. To consider how involved fathers manage predominant discourses on fatherhood, masculinity and anger within the home.
