A Short-Term Longitudinal Study of Within-Semester Stability and Change in Attachment and College Student Adjustment.
Rice, Kenneth G.; Whaley, Teddi J.
Journal of College Student Development, v35 n5 p324-30 Sep 1994
Examined importance of current student-parent attachment relationships among upperclassmen (n=131). Assessed attachment and multiple aspects of student adjustment at three points within same semester. Attachment to both mother and father consistently was important for daughters' academic, interpersonal, and emotional well-being. For sons, attachment (to father only) predicted adjustment only during high-distress periods. (Author/NB)
