Abstract/Description

Parental Relationships, Mental Health History, and Involvement on Childhood Wellbeing

Strained parental relationships have been known to have a negative impact on childhood wellbeing. Previous research has shown that co-parenting mediates the relationship between household instability and childhood external behaviors. This research will examine the affects parental relationships, mental health history, and involvement directly affects the child’s social behaviors and mental health. The goal of this research is to examine the effects parental relationships and their possible difficulties have on a child, which is a product of that relationship in hopes to better understand how children are negatively affected by aversive parental relationships. Another reason to analyze this data is to review if high parental involvement can positively impact the child despite the separation of the parents depending on which parent is more involved. This research will be examined with the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing longitudinal dataset. This data set followed about 4,000 parents and children through early and middle childhood.
