Growing Up with a Single Parent by Sara S. McLanahan

Book Description

More than half of all children in the current generation will live in a single-parent family - and these children will not fare as well as their peers who live with both parents. This is urgent message of this book. Based on four national surveys and drawing on more than a decade of research, "Growing Up With a Single Parent" elucidates the connection between family structure and a child's prospects for success.
