Journal/Book: Fam Relat. 2000; 49: 3989 Central Ave NE #550, Minneapolis, MN 55421, USA. Natl Council Family Relations. 25-44.
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the association between interparental conflict and parenting using meta-analytic review techniques. One-hundred and thirty-eight effect sizes from 39 studies are analyzed. The overall average weighted effect size is -.62, indicating a moderate association and support for the spillover hypothesis. The parenting behaviors most impacted by interparental conflict are harsh discipline and parental acceptance. Several moderating effects for subject and method characteristics are significant.
