Father Absence and Conscience Development
Hoffman, Martin L.
Developmental Psychology, 4, 3, 400-406, May 71
Father-absent and father-present seveth graders were compared on moral attributes and overt aggression. Some evidence suggests that some but not all of the effects of father absence are attributable to the lack of a paternal model. Effects may be mediated in part by changes in the mother's child-rearing pattern. (NH)
