When the Difference Is Night and Day: Parent-Child Contact after Separation.
Smyth, Bruce; Ferro, Anna
Family Matters, n63 p54-59 Spr-Sum 2002
Drew on data from the 1997 Family Characteristics Survey in Australia to examine the impact of day-only parent-child contact versus overnight stays on parent-child relationships. Found that 34 percent of children who see their nonresident parent never stay overnight with them. The more contact children have with a nonresident parent, the more likely they are to stay overnight. Overnight stays varied markedly by family type. (KB)
