This study examines the ways in which the processes of marital and parent-child interaction and their implications for children's well-being differ in mother-father and mother-stepfather families. This research considers the influence of marital quality on the quality of mother-child interaction, as indicated by the supportiveness of the mother's reported response to the child's temper tantrum, and the actual disciplinary style the mother reported using in the week prior to the interview. This research then considers the subsequent effects of the quality of mother-child interaction on children's behavior problems and self-esteem. This model of family interaction is tested using data from the 1988 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth Merged Child-Mother dataset. The research sample consists of 697 preadolescent children age 8 through 11 who lived either with both biological parents, or their mother and a stepfather in 1988, and were interviewed in 1988. Several sources of information, including maternal reports and reports from the children themselves, are utilized in this research. A series of weighted, cumulative, ordinary least squares regression models were estimated to test the relationships in this model. The results indicate that the quality of the marital relationship has a significant effect on the quality of mother-child interaction and children's behavior problems for those in mother-father families, but is more separate from these aspects of the family for those in mother-stepfather families. The quality of the mother-child relationship has similar effects for children in both types of families, with higher quality mother-child interaction having significant, beneficial effects for children's self-esteem and behavioral development. Children's feelings of self-esteem also have a significant, negative effect on their level of behavior problems, though this relationship is significant only for children in mother-father fam ilies. Additional ana lyses indicated that the effects of the key variables in this model vary significantly by family structure, with less variation by the sex or race of the child.

In this research, a sample of 697 8 to 12 year old children from the Children of the National Longitudinal Survey's Youth Cohort in 1988 is used to consider family interaction patterns and their effects for children's self-esteem and behavior problems in mother-father and mother-stepfather families. I also consider the extent to which children's feelings of self-esteem may mediate the effect of mother-child interaction on child behavior problems. The results indicate that more supportive mother-child interaction is significantly related to higher self-esteem and lower levels of behavior problems for children, regardless of family structure. There are also important differences in family process and its effects on children. In mother-father families, a higher quality marital relationship is significantly and directly related to more supportive mother-child interaction and lower levels of behavior problems in children. In contrast, the marital relationship in mother-stepfather families does not significantly effect other aspects of family life. The effect of self-esteem on children's behavior problems is also different for children in the two types of families. For children in mother-father families, having higher self-esteem is significantly related to lower levels of behavior problems. Children's self-esteem does not significantly effect their level of behavior problems for children in mother-stepfather families. The implications of these findings for children's social capital are discussed.

It is postulated that persistent marital conflict, as well as marital support, may affect the quality of interactions between mothers & their children, which in turn are expected to influence children's behavioral & emotional development, & that children's sense of self-esteem may mediate the effects of marital conflict & mother-child interaction on children's behavior problems. The model is tested for a subsample of both mother-father & mother-stepfather families (N = 688 children ages 8-11) who participated in the National Longitudinal Survey's Youth Cohort in 1988. The findings indicate that the proposed model operates similarly for mother-father & mother-stepfather families. Supportive marital relationships are associated with more positive interactions between mother & child. In turn, more positive mother-child interactions are directly related to higher levels of children's self-esteem & lower levels of behavior problems. While marital conflict does not have a direct effect on the quality of mother-child interactions, it is negatively related to children's sense of self-esteem & positively associated with behavior problems. Compared to mother-stepfather families, mother-father families are associated with more supportive, positive interactions between mothers & children, & higher levels of self-esteem in children.

The present research investigates the patterns of associations among marital quality, mothers' parenting practices and children's behavior problems and self-esteem in mother/stepfather and mother/father families. Data from a sample of 697 8 to 12 year old children from the 1988 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth are used to investigate these associations. The results indicate marital quality is significantly associated with mothers' parenting and children's outcomes in mother/father families. However, in mother/stepfather families, marital conflict is not associated with mothers' parenting or children's outcomes. Mothers' authoritative parenting is significantly related to children's outcomes in both family types.

Mothers' Work Hours and Marital Quality: Variations by Family Structure and Family Size

This research uses data from the 1988 wave of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, Merged Child-Mother to investigate the association between married mothers' employment and their reports of marital conflict and marital happiness in continuously married families with children and in mother-stepfather families. For continuously married families with children, the findings indicate a nonsignificant trend that is consistent with role strain perspectives. For mother-stepfather families, there is a significant trend in which mothers' full-time employment is associated with higher marital quality when there are more children in the household. These findings are interpreted in light of the distributive justice perspective's emphasis on the meanings of roles and the importance of spouses' perceptions of equity for marital quality.

This paper assesses the impact of marital quality and mother-child interaction patterns on children's self-esteem and maternal reports of child behavior problems. Persistent marital conflict, however low level, may affect the interaction patterns of mothers and their children, which in turn influences children's behavioral and emotional development. Also, the extent to which children's self-esteem may mediate the effects of marital conflict and mother- child interaction on children's behavior problems is investigated. The potential differences for stepfather families compared to intact families are also assessed. A sample of 688 8 to 11 year old children and their mothers and fathers or stepfathers from the NLSY in 1988 were used to investigate these questions. It was found that supportive marital relationships have positive, direct affects on the quality of the mother/child interaction. Emotionally positive and supportive interactions between mothers and their children ar e significantly related to increased child self-esteem and reports of fewer behavior problems in children. Children's self-esteem and behavior problems are also directly affected by the level of conflict in the parents' marital relationship. High marital conflict is significantly related to lower child self-esteem and reports of more child behavior problems. Children's self-esteem is significantly, negatively related to their reported level of behavior problems.

This paper assesses the impact of maternal sense of mastery and maternal working conditions on maternal perceptions of children's behavior problems as a means to study the transmission of social control across generations. Data from a sample of 521 employed mothers and their four-to-six-year-old children from the NLSY in 1986 are utilized. Regarding working conditions, the authors consider mother's hourly wage, work hours, and job content including involvement with things (vs. people), the requisite level of physical activity, and occupational complexity. Also considered are maternal and child background and current family characteristics, including marital status, family size, and home environment. Maternal mastery was related to fewer reported behavior problems among children. Lower involvement with people and higher involvement with things, as well as low physical activity, were related significantly to higher levels of perceived problems. In addition, recent changes in maternal marital status, including maternal marriage or remarriage, increased reports of problems; stronger home environments had the opposite effect. The authors interpret these findings as suggesting how maternal experiences of control in the workplace and personal resources of control can influence the internalization of control in children.
