Just the Two of Us: Parent-Child Relationships in Single-Parent Homes.
Risman, Barbara J.; Park, Kyung
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n4 p1049-62 Nov 1988
Compared and contrasted relative strength of two different theoretical explanations, individualist and microstructural, for apparent sex differences in parent-child relationships. Tested strength of each perspective empirically through comparisons of single-custodial mothers and single-custodial fathers. Findings suggest importance of microstructural variables as explanation for parenting behaviors. (Author)
