Linking Marital Violence, Mother-Child/Father-Child Aggression, and Child Behavior Problems.
Journal of Family Violence, v9 n1 p63-78 Mar 1994
Examined the relationships between violence within the family and child behavior problems in a sample of 185 children living at battered women shelters. Found that children were affected by witnessing violence between their parents and by harsh punitive discipline, particularly administered by mothers. Family violence variables were better predictors of girls' behavior problems than of boys'. (AA)
