How Children's Adjustment Is Affected by Their Relationships to Their Mothers' Abusers.
Sullivan, Cris M.; Bybee, Deborah; Juras, Jennifer; Nguyen, Huong; Allen, Nicole
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v15 n6 p587-602 Jun 2000
This article reviews evidence that an abuser's relationship to the child (whether a biological father, stepfather/father figure, or nonfather figure) is an important variable in understanding a child's adjustment. Although the level of physical abuse did not differ by grouping, stepfathers were the most emotionally abusive and children reported being fearful of them. (Author/JDM)
