Children's Relationships with Nonparental Adults: Sex-Specific Connections to Early School Success.
Riley, Dave; Cochran, Moncrieff
Sex Roles, v17 n11-12 p637-55 Dec 1987
Analysis of data collected from mothers of 162 six year olds determines that the number of adult male relatives who took the child on outings away from home was positively related to the child's report card score. This effect, however, was restricted to one-parent (mother-only) boys, who are the most at-risk group in the sample. (Author/BJV)
