Contagion in Family Affection: Mothers, Fathers, and Young Adult Children.
White, Lynn
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v61 n2 p284-94 May 1999
Examines affective relationships from the perspective of both parent and child. Results show that parents' affect is related to martial quality and the partner's relationship with the child. Children's affect for mothers and for fathers is related to their feelings toward the other parent but not to their parents' martial quality. Includes findings about stepparent relationships.
