Results of interviews with 152 neglectful mothers and 154 non-neglectful mothers, matched on race, economic status, urban/rural status, and other life circumstances, revealed that neglectful mothers reported less support available from informal networks and described their neighborhoods as less friendly and helpful than did the controls.
