AbstractThe purpose of this research was to describe fathers' perceptions of family life. The study represented a secondary analysis of data from a larger study entitled "Family Functioning: Deaf Parents with Nondeaf Children" (Jones, 1990). Transactional Field analysis provides the conceptual framework for this study. Content analysis of seven detailed interview transcripts revealed a common theme: fathers perceive insufficient time is spent interacting with their loved ones due to hectic daily living. Interventions which help fathers prioritize their responsibilities and maximize time for meaningful interaction with families are presented .
