Risk of Physical Abuse to Children of Spouse Abusing Parents.
Ross, Susan M.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n7 p589-98 Jul 1996
Analysis of data on 3,363 American parents from the 1985 National Family Violence Survey found that marital violence is a statistically significant predictor of physical child abuse and the greater the amount of spousal abuse, the greater the probability of physical child abuse. The relationship was stronger for abusing husbands than for abusing wives. (Author/DB)
