Study Shows Family Instability Has Bad Effect on Children’s Behavior

Life Site News 2 April 07
A new sociology study from John Hopkins University in Maryland confirms what pro-family groups have been saying for decades – family instability has a direct correlation to bad behavior in children.  According to a Hopkins press release about the new study, “children who go through frequent transitions are more likely to have behavioral problems than children raised in stable two-parent families and maybe even more than those in stable single-parent families.”Entitled “Family Instability and Child Well-Being”, the study was authored by Hopkins sociologists Paula Fomby and Andrew Cherlin and will be published in the April issue of the American Sociological Review.
