Abstract
Previous research, which primarily focused on parenting of married parents or divorced mothers, indicated that authoritative parenting is positively related to childrens well-being. This article contributes to the literature by investigating parenting styles of divorced fathers and their influence on childrens well-being. Using a subsample (N = 684) of the multiactor Divorce in Flanders data set, we first compare parenting styles of residential fathers, fathers in joint custody, and nonresidential fathers. Second, the relationship between those parenting styles and childrens well-being is examined. Third, we investigate if this relationship differs according to custodial arrangements. Results indicate that nonresidential fathers are more permissive and uninvolved. Authoritative fathers in different custodial arrangements have a positive influence on childrens well-being.
