Marks, Nadine F.; McLanahan, Sara S.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n2 p481-93 May 1993
Used National Survey of Families and Households data from residential parents of young children (n=5,686) to examine gender and family structure differences in social support relationships with parents, siblings, other relatives, and friends. Mothers were more involved in giving and getting support, especially emotional support, than were fathers. Single mothers/fathers were more involved with parents. (Author/NB)
