As indicated below, interesting patterns emerged in terms of fathers’ views on traditionalism.

The following research questions tapped into fathers’ feelings about their experience with
single-fatherhood and how they communicated that experience with their child. Fathers provided
written accounts in response to each question. All questions were coded similarly to existing
research that relied on respondents’ responses to open-ended questions (e.g., Emmers & Canary,
1996). Specifically, the open-ended responses were thematically coded and a category was
created based on that theme. When a theme emerged that did not fit into an existing category, a
new category was created to accommodate the newly derived theme. Research Question Four
asked, “How do fathers communicate with their children about single-fatherhood?” For category
details, please see Table 6 below.
