Abstract

Research suggests that problem behavior is remarkably stable, with the presence of such behaviors during childhood and early adolescence predieting later levels of problem behavior and delinquency (Dishion & Loeber, 1985; Farrington 1987; Robins, 1966, 1978). Given this stability, one promising area for research is the family environment. For example, harsh parenting strategies and coercive family interactions have been consistently found to predict adolescent problem behavior (Conger, Conger, Elder, Lorenz, Simons, & Whitbeck, 1992; Dishion & Loeber, 1985; Forgatch & Stoolmiller, 1994).
