This chapter uses data from the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) to examine the self-reported perceptions of parents about their relationships, how well they predict later break-up of relationships, and whether they are related to parenting behaviours and to child outcomes at age 5. It notes that a large body of research suggests that the quality of the relationship between parents is related to parenting behaviours, the interactions between parent and child, and child behavioural and cognitive outcomes. It explains that the quality of a relationship may affect child outcomes direct or may have an effect through parenting behaviour, that is, relationship quality may affect parenting behaviours that in turn affect child outcomes. It adds that theoretical models have been proposed to explain both direct and indirect pathways for such effects.

Keywords:   Millennium Cohort Study, perceptions, parents, relationships, behaviours, child outcomes, theoretical models
