Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n12 p1195-1211 Dec 1996

Results indicate that less severe abusive behaviors, especially emotional abuse, may have detrimental outcomes of hostility and aggression and that supportive behaviors by both mothers and fathers may be important factors in the outcome.
