Abstract: Since the turn of the century, the domain of juvenile delinquency, defined as antisocial or criminal behavior by children or adolescents (Morris, 1980), has been an important area of study. The purpose of the current study was to examine how family relationships were related to self-reported delinquent behavior among adolescents by testing a path model among a sample of adolescents in 6th through 8th grade. Variables in the specified model included family cohesion, family adaptability, family satisfaction, self-esteem, coercive interpersonal style, moral judgment, involvement with deviant peers, and delinquent behavior. Subjects were 619 adolescents in grades six, seven, and eight from the 29 classrooms of Reidsville Middle School in Reidsville, North Carolina. Demographic information and measures of the study variables were obtained from the subjects.
