Marital Disruption, Parent-Child Relationships, and Behavior Problems in Children.
Peterson, James L.; Zill, Nicholas
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v48 n2 p295-307 May 1986
Examined effects of marital disruption on children's behavior. Disruption was associated with a higher incidence of several behavior problems, negative effects being greatest with multiple marital transitions. The negative effects are lower if the child lives with the same-sex parent following divorce or maintains a good relationship with one or both parents. (Author/BL)
