Abstract

This study examined the relationship between family status and child behavior and the relationship between the primary caregiver groups and child behavior. In total, there were 40 non-randomly selected participants who took part in a cross-sectional design. The Final Survey consisted of a combined questionnaire of the Child Behavior Checklist and the Eyberg Child Behavior Inventory. This study found that there were no statistically significant differences between singular and dual households in regards to child behavior (p =.222) and no statistically significant differences between the primary caregiver groups in regards to child behavior (p= .312). The conclusions drawn from the findings suggest that living arrangements and the primary caregiver groups do not influence maladaptive child behavior.
