To help unmarried parents improve their coparenting relationship, this National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse
(NRFC) spotlight on research provides a quick look at findings from a recent journal article, “Harder Being Without the
Baby”: Fathers’ Coparenting Perspectives in Responsible Fatherhood Programming (Randles, 2020).

The research drew on interviews and focus groups conducted with 64 low-income fathers who participated in a federally
funded responsible fatherhood program in California. The program is referred to as “DADS” in the article and in this

The spotlight also draws on key findings from two Parents and Children Together (PACT) evaluation reports (Avellar et al,
2019 and Friend et al, 2016) and a meta-analysis of responsible fatherhood programs (Holmes et al, 2020).
