Yabiku, Scott T.; Axinn, William G.; Thornton, Arland
American Journal of Sociology, v104 n5 p1494-1524 Mar 1999
Introduces the concept of family integration to describe how family social organization affects individuals. Hypothesizes that well-integrated parents benefit children's self-concept formation. Tests three mechanisms of parental family integration, and shows that integration early in life has positive effects on children's self-esteem in early adulthood. (DSK)
