Interdependencies of Marital and Stepparent-Stepchild Relationships and Children's Psychological Adjustment: Research Findings and Clinical Implications.
Brand, Eulalee; Clingempeel, W. Glenn
Family Relations, v36 n2 p140-45 Apr 1987
Examined interdependencies of marital and stepparent-stepchild relationships and children's psychological adjustment in 62 stepfamilies. In stepmother families, higher marital quality was associated with more positive stepmother-stepson relationships and better stepson adjustment, but less positive stepmother-stepdaughter relationships and poorer stepdaughter adjustment. In stepfather families, stepfathers with better marriages were more positive toward stepchildren of both sexes. (Author/ABB)
