Example text

The older children in the sample, the 75 who were 10 years and over, completed self-report questionnaires on these issues, scales from the large scale study of adolescents by Hetherington and colleagues (Hetherington et al, 1999). The key findings of relevance for the issues addressed in this volume were as follows. First, the children’s accounts of both what their non-resident fathers knew about their lives and how far their fathers influenced their activities were correlated with the positive quality of their relationships with their fathers.

6 . CAUTIONS Three cautions should be noted about generalising from this study. First, the study was based on a sample of children growing up within a relatively stable community, with the majority of non-resident fathers living quite close by, and frequent contact between children and their fathers. It is clearly important not to assume that these findings would generalise to children living in very different family circumstances or communities. The issue of whether quite different patterns of findings might be obtained with families from ethnic minority communities is also important.

The level of retention over the first five years of the study was 75 per cent, an attrition rate within the range reported for large-scale surveys (eg, Booth and Amato, 1991). The rates of stepfamilies, single-parent and non-step families resembles that of the UK population (O’Connor, Hawkins, Dunn, et al, 1998). For the ABSS subsample, approximately 50 families with two or more children were randomly selected from each of four household types: (a) nonstepfamilies in which both parents were biologically related to all children in the family, (b) stepfather families in which at least one child was not biologically related to the resident father, (c) ‘complex’ stepfamilies in which both parents had brought children from previous relationships or there was a stepmother, (d) single-mother families.
