3. Résumé


«Children learn about health from parental modeling and reinforcement, but they also inherit the social constraints placed on their behaviours and choice of friends by family [...] Developmentally sensitive longitudinal models are required in order to understand this process and to plan interventions and prevention for high-risk individuals and their families.» (p. 2418) «These findings [from the current study] provide support for a link between early problem behaviours and health-risk, as well as evidence that this link may help perpetuate the accumulation of health problems within high-risk families [...] Maternal health-risk and wellness behaviours were related to each other and also to health lifestyle in offspring, supporting inter-generational continuity as well as an ecological model of heal.» (p. 2423)
