Course Description: Research has linked couple conflict to the development of children's externalizing behavior problems, but few studies have examined the long-term impact of positive dimensions of couple relationships, evaluated the independent effects of coparenting, or fully explored the pathways by which coparenting and other dimensions affect children's behavior. In the present study, researchers addressed these issues by analyzing two large, longitudinal datasets consisting of information obtained from parents, teachers, and children on multiple occasions between infancy and middle childhood. The researchers found that supportive couple relationships in early childhood predicted fewer externalizing problems in middle childhood. The effects of couple supportiveness were attributable in part to parenting and coparenting during the preschool years. Effects were stronger for negative parenting than for positive parenting, and for mothers' parenting than for fathers' parenting. Effects for coparenting were as strong as or stronger than effects for parenting alone. The findings have implications for interventions that support couples during the early stages of parenthood, and for better understanding how parenting and coparenting impact children's externalizing behavior problems.  

 

Learning Objectives:  

  1. Understand the rationale for the study as well as the longitudinal approaches to gathering data from two large samples 
  2. Describe the main findings of the study with respect to the impact of couple supportiveness on children's externalizing behavior problems in middle childhood 
  3. Integrate the strengths and limitations of the study, and summarize the practical implications for supporting couples who have or will become parents
