Adolescents after divorce by Christy M Buchanan( )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 2,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When their parents divorce, some children falter and others thrive. This book asks why. Is it the custody arrangement? A parent's new partner? Conflict or consistency between the two households? Adolescents after Divorce follows teenagers from 1,100 divorcing families to discover what makes the difference. Focusing on a period beginning four years after the divorce, the authors have the articulate, often insightful help of their subjects in exploring the altered conditions of their lives. These teenagers come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some are functioning well. Some are faring poorly. The authors examine the full variety of situations in which these children find themselves once the initial disruption has passed - whether parents remarry or repartner, how parents relate to each other and to their children, and how life in two homes is integrated. Certain findings emerge - for instance, remarried new partners are better accepted than cohabiting new partners. And when parents' relations are amicable, adolescents in dual custody are less likely than other adolescents to experience loyalty conflicts. The authors also consider the effects of visitation arrangements, The demands made and the goals set within each home, and the emotional closeness of the residential parent to the child. A mine of information on a topic that touches so many Americans, this study will be crucial for researchers, counselors, lawyers, judges, and parents

Conflict in Divorcing Families by Eleanor E Maccoby( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parental conflict as it occurs in the context of divorce was studied in an effort to determine the role that conflict plays in a variety of psychosocial problems in children. Data were drawn from a 5-year longitudinal study of about 1,000 families who filed for divorce in 1984. The first phase of the study involved a series of interviews with the divorced parents over a 3-year period. In the second phase, the adolescent children in the families were interviewed about 4.5 years after their parents separated. Research areas investigated included interparental hostility, discordant coparenting, conflict between custodial parents and adolescents, the adolescent's relationship with both parents, loyalty conflicts, and the adolescent's bonding with each parent. Although data analysis was not complete at the time of this progress report, it is suggested that when children maintain contact with two parents who exhibit high hostility toward each other, there is risk to the children. It is tentatively concluded that it is best for children to see both parents only if the parents can cooperate to a reasonable degree. Although many children suffer from the parent conflicts involved in divorce, it is not inevitable that their level of functioning will be impaired. (Lb)

Over-time associations among parental self-efficacy, promotive parenting practices, and adolescents' externalizing behaviors by Terese Glatz( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Parental self-efficacy (PSE) is defined as parents' beliefs about their abilities to influence their children in a way that fosters their children's positive development. Research has shown links among PSE, parenting, and children's behavior (Jones & Prinz, 2005), but there are still questions concerning the associations over time. Theory predicts 3 types of processes relevant to these associations: a PSE-driven process, a parent-behavior-driven process, and a child-driven process. In this study, we tested these processes during early to middle adolescence using reports from 401 parents (286 mothers, 115 fathers) from 305 families, and their adolescents (M-age = 11.5 years), at 3 time points. Cross-lagged panel models were used to examine the associations among PSE, promotive parenting practices, and adolescents' externalizing. Results supported a PSE-driven process for mothers within early adolescence. In addition, evidence for parent-behavior-driven and child-driven processes emerged at different times within this developmental period
Internet-specific parental self-efficacy: Developmental differences and links to Internet-specific mediation( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Most children spend significant time on the Internet every day, and parents have an important role in helping their children to avoid negative online experiences. In this study, we examine the potential role of Internet-specific parental self-efficacy (Internet-specific PSE) as an antecedent for Internet-specific parenting practices. A study of 1025 parents of children in grades 6 (approximately 11–12 years) to 12 (approximately 17–18 years) allowed us to examine the links among Internet-specific PSE, the child's grade in school, and Internet-specific parenting practices. The results showed developmental decreases in Internet-specific PSE and Internet-specific parenting practices: Parents of older adolescents felt less efficacious and used less control-based parenting practices than did parents of younger adolescents. Furthermore, Internet-specific PSE was a significant predictor of Internet-specific parenting practices (both communication-based and control-based practices). These results suggest the importance of both parental beliefs and children's grade in school for parenting in the area of children's online activities. Highlights: We found support for both active mediation and restrictive mediation strategies. Internet-specific PSE was significantly linked to all types of mediation strategies. Parents of older children reported lower PSE and restrictive mediation. Parents used active mediation as a strategy over the whole developmental period
Civic Orientation in Cultures of Privilege( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The context of privilege provides unique opportunities and challenges for youth civic development. A mixed-method approach was used to examine links between school-based community service, school climate, and civic orientation among students in cultures of privilege. Surveys completed by students ( N = 376) at two private high schools—one with an extracurricular community service requirement and one without—suggest that students in the school without the service requirement report similar, and in some cases more positive, civic attitudes than students from the school with the requirement. Focus-group data indicated that the service requirement was viewed positively, but illuminated other school experiences that might promote community orientation in cultures of privilege, such as an emphasis on global awareness and making civic priorities fundamental to school identity
