Coping with Parental Problems: Panel Assessments of Effectiveness.
Menaghan, Elizabeth G.
Journal of Family Issues, v4 n3 p483-506 Sep 1983
Surveyed 1,106 parents to examine the effectiveness of four parental coping efforts--punitive disciplinary efforts, optimistic comparisons, selective ignoring, and resignation. Results showed more frequent punitive disciplinary efforts and less optimistic comparisons were associated with greater parental distress. None of the coping efforts directly affected later parental problems. (JAC)
