Brown, Ronald T.; Pacini, Joseph N.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v22 n9 p581-87 Nov 1989
A study found that parents of 51 boys (aged 5-13) with attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity perceived their family environment as less supportive and more stressful than control groups, with lower levels of interpersonal relationships, more depression, and higher separation/divorce rates. Differences were found in mothers' and fathers' perceptions. (MSE)
