Journal of Research on Adolescence, v6 n4 p457-88 1996
Examined socioemotional adjustment, academic performance, and global well-being of adolescents in intact first-married, divorced single-parent, step-, and continuously single mother families. Found that adolescents in first-married families have slightly higher scores on all three dimensions, but few differences are statistically significant. Also found that mother-adolescent disagreement is the strongest, most consistent predictor of well-being. (EV)
