Debates about continuity and change in fathering often involve discussion of financial providing and caring involvement. Whilst there remains a lack of consensus about the extent to which these issues are actually new, they are widely recognised as important aspects of cultural constructions of good fatherhood. One group of men who face particular challenges in being seen as good fathers are young fathers, who have different resources to negotiate the demands of earning and caring. This analysis elucidates understandings of continuity and change in the lives of young fathers by exploring how they relate to conceptions of involvement and breadwinning. By drawing on two case examples from a qualitative longitudinal dataset, young fathers' relationships to earning and caring over time are explored. This methodological approach serves to illustrate the dynamic nature of young fathers' lives, capturing changes and continuities in their accounts through time.
