Child Development, v69 n5 p1461-79 Oct 1998
Couples with school-age children with mental retardation completed self-report and observational measures of marriage, the parenting alliance, and parenting attitudes and behaviors at two periods. Findings indicated significant effects of marital quality on changes in self-reports of perceived parenting competence, and in observed negative mother-child interactions; the parenting alliance mediated effects of marriage on parenting experiences.
