Third, there is the traditional notion that mothers are more capable of caring for children compared to fathers, so it is possible that the effect of single mother families differs compared to single father families on a child's well-being, with children living in the former family structure type having better outcomes than those living in the Cited by: The evidence on this, however, is not entirely consistent.

A range of other studies failed to turn up any evidence that multiple transitions are more damaging to children’s wellbeing (Booth and AmatoCarlson and CorcoranTeachman ).

Results suggest that living with a single mother or living in a cohabiting arrangement is associated with poorer child development outcomes relative to living in married mother arrangements.

In contrast, children in coresiding arrangements do not have poorer outcomes relative to children in married mother arrangements. Lone parent families now represent around 22% of British families and 20% of British children.

1 This trend is not evenly distributed throughout the population: lone parenthood either resulting from never married lone mothers or divorce is more common in disadvantaged groups.

2 The changing structure of families that has resulted in a fifth of children living with one parent has precipitated Cited by:   Compared with children living in couple families, the prevalence of abnormal total difficulties scores was 14% higher for children in reconstituted families and 10% for those in lone-parent families.

Only small proportions reported having fair or poor general health Cited by: Parenting and outcomes for children Context One of the most important trends in parenting research over the past decade has been towards a greater contextualised understanding of the origins of parent–child relationships, the meaning they have to parents and children, and the effects they have on an array of outcomes in children.

The increase of lone-parent families is a common phenomenon across Europe. Lone parent families have been the focus of extensive research as these families are in a vulnerable position in society. attainment. Compared with two parent families, lone parent families tend to be significantly worse off financially.

Financial hardship increases the likelihood of other variables associated with negative outcomes, such as poor housing, health problems, poor nutrition and fewer material resources for nurturing children. -The concepts of periods of development is a social construction.

In this book child development is divided into five periods: the prenatal period, infancy and toddlerhood, early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence.

In each period, children have characteristic developmental needs and tasks. Introduction. Two well-known facts provide a rationale for the current study. First, the percentage of children living with single parents increased substantially in the United States during the second half of the 20 th century.

Other studies have reported associations between family structure and child health outcomes.

In line with the risk of fewer resources among single parents, children living in single-parent households often report lower wellbeing (Chapple, ) and tend to have poorer cognitive attainment (Harkness & Salgado, Chapter Five in this book), as well as fewer economic resources and more strains in child–parent relations compared with peers.
