Purpose: This study explores the influence of paternal and maternal grandmothers on the transition to fatherhood of unmarried low income, African American adolescent fathers. Method: A qualitative approach using a naturalistic inquiry design. Twenty grandmothers were interviewed using a structured interview guide. Findings: Six major themes representing domains of family transitions emerged from the data. They include family signposts, family reactions, family values, family relationships, family strategies, and family adaptations. Consistent with the African American cultural definition of family, the experience of transition is not limited to adolescent fathers, but extends to their entire families and to the families of adolescent mothers. Conclusion: Healthcare providers who work with adolescent parents should identify sources of support and conflict within both adolescent parents’ families. Furthermore, future research should focus on identifying and assessing the mechanisms of support and influence of family members on paternal involvement of unmarried, low-income, African American adolescent fathers.
