Socialization and Development in a Changing Economy: The Effects of Paternal Job and Income Loss on Children.
McLoyd, Vonnie C.
American Psychologist, v44 n2 p293-302 Feb 1989
Reviews research on the impact of paternal job and income loss on the child. Most effects are indirect and mediated through the changes that economic loss produces in the father's behavior and disposition. High maternal support and experiences that encourage maturity and autonomy are critical sources of psychological resilience in children who have experienced economic hardship. (Author/BJV)
