The Behavioral Adjustment of Clergy Children.
McCown, Darlene; Sharma, Chandra
The purpose of this study was to describe the social competencies and behavioral problems of a national sample of pastors' children and to compare them to age and sex standardized norms. Data on 98 children between 4 and 16 years of age were obtained by using the Child Behavior Checklist with a random sample of 62 families. Pastors' children have traditionally been thought to have more behavioral problems than other children, since they face high expectations and are part of families which are often under public scrutiny. Findings indicated that scores for both boys and girls at each age grouping fell well within the acceptable norms for social competencies and behavioral problems. (Author/RH)
