The Long Shadow of Marital Conflict: A Model of Children's Postdivorce Adjustment.
Kline, Marsha; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n2 p297-309 May 1991
Examined direct and indirect influences of marital discord on behavioral and emotional adjustment of 154 children and adolescents 2 years after parental filing for divorce. Found that marital conflict contributed to problematic emotional and behavioral child adjustment, largely indirectly through poorer mother-child relationships. Disputing spouses also had higher postseparation conflict and children with more behavioral problems. (Author/NB)
