Check out Dr. Cavanagh's latest article, How Does Juvenile Offending Relate to Mothers’ Aspirations and Expectations for Their Sons? in the Journal of Research on Adolescence.

As their children continued to engage in delinquent acts, mothers’ expectations for their sons’ future success diminished, particularly for younger youths.
