Sex of Parent and Children's Well-Being in Single-Parent Households.
Downey, Douglas B.; Ainsworth-Darnell, James W.; Dufur, Mikaela J.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v60 n4 p878-93 Nov 1998
Highlights how single mothers and single fathers differ in ways that often predate their family structure, but suggests that there is little evidence that offspring are better off or develop particular characteristics in one household versus the other. Suggests that theorists have overemphasized the role of parents' sex in youths' development. (Author/MKA)
