Psychosocial Antecedents of Variation in Girls' Pubertal Timing: Maternal Depression, Stepfather Presence, and Marital and Family Stress.
Ellis, Bruce J.; Garber, Judy
Child Development, v71 n2 p485-501 Apr-May 2000
Tested model relating girls' pubertal timing to mothers' history of psychopathology, mediated by family discord and father absence/stepfather presence. Found that mothers' history of mood disorders predicted earlier daughters' puberty, with the relation fully mediated by dyadic stress and biological father absence. Stepfather presence best accounted for earlier puberty in girls living apart from biological fathers. (Author/KB)
