Influences of Race and Family Environment on Child Hyperactivity and Antisocial Behavior.
Schmitz, Mark F.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v65 n4 p835-49 Nov 2003
Examines relationships between trajectories of child hyperactivity and antisocial behavior symptoms for African Americans, European Americans, and Hispanics. Overall, child hyperactivity mediated the effects of family environment on child antisocial behavior, but with key racial differences. Results indicate the importance of conceptualizing patterns of family interaction as adaptive responses to the environment, rather than individual developmental interactions.
