Abstract:

Intergenerational studies of offending have directed their attention on solely towards intergenerational continuity, and nothing is known about intergenerational discontinuity. This paper asks: how should we define intergenerational continuity; how much discontinuity exists; and what individual, family, peer and school and neighborhood factors are related to intergenerational discontinuity? The sample used in this study consists of children enrolled in the Rochester Intergenerational Study born to parents (both male and female) who participated in the Rochester Youth Development Study and who occupied delinquent trajectory groups during childhood. After drawing from developmental and intergenerational theories of delinquency to establish a meaningful definition of intergenerational discontinuity, its occurrence is documented using univariate analyses. A ‘discontinuity’ group of children, defined using measures of delinquency in early childhood, is compared to all other children in the sample along a variety of measures using t-tests. Factors included in analyses are those demonstrated to increase the likelihood of desistence of antisocial behavior by parents, increase the likelihood of intergenerational continuity (and so are reverse coded), and delay the onset of delinquency in children. Individual-, family-, peer-, school-, and neighborhood-related factors are therefore included. Contributions, limitations, and future directions of this study are discussed.
