Mother's versus Father's Role in Causing Delinquency.
Johnson, Richard E.
Adolescence, v22 n86 p305-15 Sum 1987
Examined parent-child relationships and self-reported delinquent behavior in over 700 adolescents. Indicated that males were more delinquent than females; adolescent gender was not related to strength of parental attachment; both males and females were closer to mother than to father; and closeness to father was the better predictor of delinquent behavior, especially among males.
