Impact of Childhood Family Disruption on Young Adults' Relationships with Parents.
Aquilino, William S.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v56 n2 p295-313 May 1994
Explored implications of childhood family disruption for parent-adult child relations in sample of 4,516 young adults. Among young adults raised in single-parent families, relationships with custodial mothers and custodial fathers remained quite positive into early adulthood. Becoming noncustodial parent resulted in severe deterioration of father-child relationship but not of mother-child relationship. (Author/NB)
