After-School Activities and the Development of Low-Income Urban Children: A Longitudinal Study.
Posner, Jill K.; Vandell, Deborah Lowe
Developmental Psychology, v35 n3 p868-79 May 1999
Studied after-school activities of third graders for two years. Found that children attending after-school programs spent more time on academic and extracurricular activities; children in informal care spent more time watching television and "hanging out." Sex differences were reported in the type of activities. Time spent in activities was related to fifth graders' adjustment. (Author/KB)
