Fathers' childcare is fairly consistently distinguished from housework and paid work. It is sometimes mistakenly distinguished from fathers' play activities with their children. Nevertheless, it is otherwise often defined in undifferentiated terms that are of little help in understanding fathers' psychological involvement with their children.

Even though this is a study of men, the role of father is obviously complexly interrelated with women's roles of wife and mother. Thus it is important to acknowledge that Erikson's model has been criticized by Gilligan (1982) as being defined by the experience and perspective of men (compare Miller-McLemore, 1989; see Erikson, 1975, pp.

Mature intimacy may logically presuppose the prior attainment of a reasonably stable identity, because intimacy involves the "mutual verification through an experience of finding oneself, as one loses oneself, in another" (Erikson, 1964, p. 128). Identity confusion, that is, limits the "ability to fuse your identity with somebody else's without fear that you're going to lose something yourself (Evans, 1969, p. 48). In addition to the achievement of personal identity, the crisis of intimacy is likely made possible and necessary by the synchronization or cogwheeling of the cognitive ability to see the limits of an adolescent logical mode of introspecting endlessly, and the intensifying biosocial need to survive through the culturally defined roles of spouse and parent.
