Father Absence as a Risk Factor for Substance Use and Illegal Behavior by the Adolescent Sons.
Friedman, Alfred S.; Ali, Asad; McMurphy, Suzanne
Journal of Child and Adolescent Substance Abuse, v8 n2 p79-95 1998
Illegal behavior, drug trafficking, and substance abuse levels of two groups (both parents, mother only) of inner-city African-American youth were compared. African-American subjects who had been raised in mother-only households reported significantly fewer illegal offenses. Findings are contrary to common attitudes regarding the effects of fatherlessness. (Author/EMK)
