Consumers and Child Care: An Annotated Bibliography. Annotated Bibliography III.
This bibliography assembles a wide range of information on parental attitudes and behaviors that will help readers understand the needs of families, and especially low-income families, who use child care. Most of the books, reports, and journal articles described can be obtained from libraries. Topics addressed by these sources of information include: (1) the effects of parental employment on children; (2) resource and referral agencies; (3) parental choice of child care programs; (4) consumer issues; and (5) the special needs of low-income and welfare parents. Some of the books, reports, and articles report the results of studies and surveys of child care, and describe particular child care programs. The bibliography contains 44 titles. (BC)
