Paternal Involvement and Children's Behavior Problems.
Amato, Paul R.; Rivera, Fernando
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v61 n2 p375-84 May 1999
Using data from the National Survey of Families and Households, research tests the hypothesis that positive father involvement is associated with fewer behavior problems in children. Positive paternal and maternal involvement was independently and significantly associated with children's behavior problems. Estimated effects were similar for biological fathers, stepfathers, White fathers, Black fathers, and Latino fathers. (Author/JDM)
