Do Attitudinal and Behavioral Ratings of Family Members Vary across Familial Configurations?
Parish, Thomas S.; Necessary, James R.
Adolescence, v29 n115 p649-52 Fall 1994
Compared 212 high school students from different family structures regarding their descriptions of themselves and their parents. Found that fathers' ratings or evaluations, but not mothers' ratings or students' self-ratings, suffered in wake of divorce. Regarding perceived "loving" actions by parents, students from intact families had advantage over counterparts from reconstituted, divorced, and single-parent families. (Author/NB)
