This chapter uses an interpersonal framework to develop an understanding of how adolescent males manage the transition to parenthood, highlighting different pathways and outcomes that can emerge during this process. It employs complementary methods and analytic strategies to provide a comprehensive understanding of the development and functioning of young fathers. More specifically, a combination of observational and self-report data helps provide a broad perspective on interpersonal trends associated with the adjustment to parenthood, while interview-based narrative data from two young fathers help anchor these trends in the concrete life experiences of individuals.
