The Family and Hierarchy.
Nock, Steven L.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n4 p957-66 Nov 1988
Cites literature supporting view that as adults, children from single-parent families have less success in school, lower earnings, and lower occupational prestige than children from intact, two-parent families. Proposes that one reason why children from one-parent families achieve less as adults is that they lack exposure to hierarchical models of authority relations in their families. (Author/NB)
