Garnefski, Nadia; Diekstra, Rene F. W.
Journal of Adolescence, v20 n2 p201-08 Apr 1997
Investigated differences among adolescents (N=13,953) living in intact families, one-parent families, and stepparent families. Results indicate that adolescents from one parent and stepparent families reported lower self-esteem, more symptoms of anxiety and loneliness, more depressed mood, more suicidal thoughts, and more suicide attempts than children from intact families.
