Father-Child Relations, Mother-Child Relations, and Offspring Psychological Well-Being in Early Adulthood.
Amato, Paul R.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v56 n4 p1031-42 Nov 1994
Analysis of data from 471 young adults showed that closeness to fathers made unique contribution to offspring happiness, life satisfaction, and psychological distress. Parental divorce weakened salience of father-child relationship for adult children's life satisfaction. Similarly, marriage, parenthood, and full-time employment diminished salience of both mother-child and father-child relationship for offspring well-being. (Author/NB)
