This chapter examines the links between family influences and the development and persistence of antisocial behavior. Bearing a strong preference for longitudinal designs, it synthesizes the literature addressing both structural and process factors in the home environment that are associated with aggression, theft, vandalism, problematic substance use, and the violation of societal rules. These associations are viewed using a number of conceptual backdrops, including theories emanating from social learning and behavioral genetics approaches. This chapter concludes with concrete implications for effective family approaches in prevention and intervention. Specifically, this chapter draws upon the concepts of warmth, control, and boundary issues in at-risk parenting and how the promotion of proactive child rearing with these three crucial components in mind promotes optimal development.

Keywords:   parenting, chronic offending, antisocial behavior, family, developmental psychopathology, maternal education, family structure, maternal depression, corporal punishment, behavioral genetics
