The relationship between parental Composition, Supervision, and Conduct problems in Children Aged 12 to 17.
Jocelyn (Junru) Liu
Harris’s research on the relationship between family composition and the chance of a kid displaying behaviour issues in a national probability sample of 12–17-year-olds was published in 1984. The role of parental supervision in modulating the effects of teenagers’ activities was also investigated. Sex, wealth, and race were all kept under check. Youths in father-absent families were more likely to have behavioural issues than those in father-present households. Youths from father-absent families with little parental supervision, on the other hand, were more likely to have behavioural issues. Youths from father-absent homes were no more likely than those from father-present families to have behaviour issues in households with a high level of supervision.
